Hopefully : Hopefully your symptoms are now improving. If it is related to neurologic dysfunction then the most likely explanation would be a nerve root injury from the neck. If that is so then a few further questions are necessary: â€¢what activities and head positions increase or decrease symptoms? This information can be helpful for both diagnosis and treatment. â€¢when did the injury occur, what was the mechanism of injury, and what was done at that time? I know you said that you woke up with the pain but perhaps did you do something the day before which could have elicited the pain? â€¢have you experienced previous episodes of similar symptoms or localized neck pain? Do you have other neurologic symptoms such as pins and needles, numbness, or weakness? â€¢what previous treatments (prescribed or self-selected) have you tried? These may include: Ã¢â€”Â¦the use of ice and/or heat Ã¢â€”Â¦medications (eg, acetaminophen, aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs [nsaids]) Ã¢â€”Â¦physical therapy, traction, or manipulation Ã¢â€”Â¦injections Ã¢â€”Â¦surgical treatments. â€¢a social history should include your activities and hobbies to look for any potential source of the problem. As far as the cause for a radiculopathy, compression may be from a disc herniation, degenerative changes about the neural foramen, or a combination of the 2. A study in patients with cervical disc disease found that compression of a nerve root produced limb pain, whereas pressure on the disc produced pain in the neck and medial border of the scapula. Thus you should seek a neurologic consultation to figure out the source of your problem and determine the plan of action. Good luck and i wish you well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
