  • Try and use an NSID Cream to get you through to your injection.

    Generally it can be difficult on here to work out how your pains are being transmitted down the arm from neck and shoulder. You could also try a hot compress on and around your neck and shoulder that may help increase the circulation down into your arm.

    Whatever you do you need a treatment plan on top of your injection and cream.

    On my neck. shoulders and legs I use a TENS Machine, they can be applied to form a nerve block when you discover where most of the pains are coming from, that can give short or mid term relief. If you see a Rhumi He will be able to show you how to use this type of machine. BODY CLOCK sell a good selection of various machines that will help. If you are Disabled you may be able to get the VAT back

  • What medication are you currently taking for pain relief? And how did they come to the conclusion of your diagnosis? ultra sound, mri? I have trapped nerves and I currently have butrans patches that work a treat x

  • Nerve pain can be treated with drugs such as gabapentin, pregabalin and amitriptyline on prescription from your doctor.
