As above : What is the question ? If u want treatment ask u physician . But. U need to remember some times pain can be chronic and medication r to nake it more tolerable and not to cure it. In addition physical therapy may be helpfull.

Needs evaluation.: The answer can probably be obtained following an examination by a neurologist, neurologic testing and an MRI of the cervical spine.
