PRESSURE ON NERVES: Pain in neck radiating down the arm usually is from pressure on the nerves that originate from the neck you need to be evaluated by your doctor or an ortopedic specialist, you need exam and may need MRI exam to find the cause.You are only 34 years old so see your doc.

Pinched nerve: Neck pain that runs down the arm with or without numbness and tingling sounds like a pinched nerve in the neck. This is usually caused by a protruding disc or bone spur touching one of your spinal nerves as it leaves your neck. This can often improve on it's own with rest and anti-inflammatories, but if your pain lasts greater than one week or gets worse see your physician.

Pinched nerve: A pinched nerve can cause neck pain headaches, and pain or numbness running into the arm. There are other potential causes, however, and so it would be good to just get a regular check up to make sure it is nothing else. Physical therapy, chiropractic, and interventional pain management are the non operative treatments for it if it doesn't get better. Thank you.
