neck pain to arm painand 2 MRIs...
i am looking for some input on what could be wrong with my sister.
she is 41, very healthy, has two little boys and has no past health issues.
last week she woke up one morning with a stiff neck. she figured she just slept on it wrong, it remained sore but she went on. then a few days later she woke up with severe pain in her right arm, pain so bad she went to the ER. they gave her an MRI and some pain meds and muscle relaxers and sent her home. the pain meds did nothing to help. she was in so much pain, she could not do anything but lay on her back with one arm raised. she went to a doctor again and they continued the meds and did another MRI. they said there appears to be a problem between discs 5 and 6. the pain meds still are not helping. she is contantly crying in pain. she cannot hold her boys or pour a drink or sit up, just lays there.
what on earth could be wrong?
