Is a pinched nerve in the neck at C5 C6 a serious condition? Is a pinched nerve like cervical radiculopathy? Please help

Outcome varies: If there is compression of one of the nerve roots it is sometimes equivalent to a "pinched nerve". This type of physical compression of a nerve root can result in a radiculopathy. The outcome is variable. Sometimes over a period of days - weeks the radiculopathy will spontaneously improve. If you start noticing difficulty in pinching (weakness) of your thumb and index finger then check with MD.

What to take for a pinched nerve in my neck/shoulder?

What to take for a pinched nerve in my neck/shoulder?

Exercise and aspirin: Of course the answer may be different if the nerve is truly pinched & is either in the shoulder or in the neck. The best treatments for mechanical problems, like pinched nerve, are mechanical. Symptomatic relief with anti-inflammatories may reduce pain but more importantly allow corrective exercise to be used to lessen symptoms. Find out what caused your trouble, then do something about it.

You need evaluation: You can try heat or ice. If it hurts to move your shoulder it could be a problem there. If it's bad enough, see your pcp or a spine physiatrist. There are a number of treatments short of surgery, such as physical therapy, chiropractic manipulations, and injections. If these fail, surgery may be indicated in which case seek the care of a fellowship-trained orthopaedic spine surgeon or neurosurgeon.

What can I do if I think I have a pinched nerve in my upper back in between my shoulder blades that radiating pain in my back, neck, &in shoulder socket?

Upper back pain: The pain that you describe could be from a pinched nerve but it could also be from muscles or tendons that are inflamed or injured. For example, the attachment of the rib head to the spine can be malpositioned and create the pain you describe. It is important to be evaluated by a neurosurgeon or spine surgeon to determine the cause of the pain so that a proper treatment can be initiated.

Can a pinched nerve cause neck pain shoulder and shoulder blade pain? Or what are some different things it could be?

MANY CONSIDERATIONS: A ruptured disc in neck, thoracic outlet syndrome, pectoralis minor syndrome, parsonage turner syndrome, all could be considered. Even carpal tunnel may refer pain upwards, but not usually into neck. Shoulder, neck, and blade pain may be seen with internal shoulder derangements, such as rotator cuff tear. With all these thoughts, see your physician and pin this down. Then treat it.

Since last month I've had a sharp pain in my neck, shoulder, & arm all on the right side. Wondering if it could possibly be a tear or pinched nerve?

Since last month I've had a sharp pain in my neck, shoulder, & arm all on the right side. Wondering if it could possibly be a tear or pinched nerve?

Neck, arm pain: This question is not appropriate as it is patient specific. Having stated that, yes cervical nerves do travel to the neck and upper extremity and can get "pinched". There can be many other causes of sharp pain, some of which need looking into. The exact distribution of pain is very important to direct further diagnostic tests such as MRI.

I woke up in the middle of the night with a sore neck. I feel like I have a pinched nerve on the top of my shoulder and it hurts to breath.?

Muscle strain: Wakiing up with a sore neck can often be due to sleeping in a uncomfortable posture which results in a muscle strain. For starters try applying ice for 4-5 minutes followed by warm application over the painful area of the neck. Also, tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen could help.
