Last weekend I injured myself working out and was presented by pain in my right shoulder on Monday. By Tuesday morning the pain was severe and running down my arm to my fingers coupled with numbness and pin and needles. I was diagnosed with a slipped disc in the neck and Cervical Spondylitis without myelopathy but I thought if my right limb is involved then I do have some myelopathy. I'm currently taking regular doses of Ibuprofen and Paracetamol and Amitriptyline. Opiates I'm told are useless with this type of pain and I'm not keen to take them anyway. I can only sleep on my back at present and find this is the only time and position that is virtually pain-free. Does anyone know how long this will take to heal?
