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

Exercise and aspirin

Pinched_nerve
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.

Dr. Chaim B. Colen answered:

Pain in neck shoulder blade pinched nerve, what is beneficial for it?

Non-surgical

Extremity-joint-shoulder
Non surgical treatment should always be considered when treating pinched nerves. As Dr. Wilner points out, there are multiple modalities to trial. It sounds as if you may have a pinched nerve at C6-7 and an MRI of your cervical spine might be beneficial.

Physical therapy.

Don't know if you tried physical therapy. The nerve may be pinched in the shoulder region, or in the neck. You may benefit from cervical traction, and manual therapy.

Pain-shoulder blade, neck and top of head on one side. Pinched nerve? Treatment?

disc problem

Nerve
Depends on duration, but chronic pain in that pattern could be caused by a pinched nerve in the neck. A detailed physical and Neuro exam, if neck movement or talking on the phone in that arm aggravates symptoms, it is consistent, an MRI might be useful, if it is affecting performance or function. Otherwise anti inflammatories, rest about the neck with cardio low impact exercise useful

I have a pinched nerve in my upper back neck and shoulder right side what should I do?

You need evaluation

Extremity-joint-shoulder
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.

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

MANY CONSIDERATIONS

Neck
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.

Dr. Brian Broker answered:

My whole right shoulder hand left hand fall asleep going numb on me neck pain could it be a pinched nerve in my neck?

Pinched nerve

Physical_therapy
Yes, most likely a pinched nerve although there are several possible causes. You should start be seeing your primary care doctor. You may only need physical therapy to relieve the pressure on the nerve but may need more extensive treatments and, much less often, surgery to correct the problem.
