No: Absolutely not. Any medication that can impair cognitive function, coordination, reflexes, motor function- should be avoided before driving. Especially when driving others

Need eval: Anytime you have neck pain, arm pain with tingling of your upper extremities, you need to be evaluated for nerve compression, ie pinched nerve in neck or brachial plexus. Pain with pressing on arm may be due tendinitis or other soft tissue or inflammatory injuries. Bottom line is that you need to be examined and a history of any precipitating injury taken before a diagnosis can be made

More workup needed: You need to establish whether this is truly nerve pain vs pain of musculoskeletal origin. If it is nerve pain, locating the source (ie cervical spine, brachial plexus, or peripheral nerve) may allow for some more specific site directed treatments that can both relieve the pain and fix the root of the problem. Nerve meds can help symptomatically and there are a number of them that can be used.
