you could be having a pinched nerve in your neck from a herniated disk.
yes, you can go to the ER or A&E and ask to be evaluated.
you should be getting an MRI scan of your neck to look for herniated disks.
there is no releif
no matter what I do
what is the solution
you need to see a doctor who can order you an MRI scan of your neck.
to check for herniated disks pressing on nerves.
what causes this
you can see a GP doctor who can refer you to have an MRI scan
that can be a wait in the NHS system.
I am 50 years old im guessing its my age
as we get older, sometimes the disks in between the bones of the spine can pop out and press on nerves and cause horrible radiating pain.
sometimes steroid injections into the area can help decrease swelling.
severe cases need surgery to cut out the bulging disk.
I take it you haven't had an MRI scan of your neck spine yet.
no I have not
you need to have one.
talk to your GP right away about it.
if there is a long wait, you might have to get a private MRI scan
do you have any other questions?
do you have any idea how much that might cost
a private mri
that would depend on where you get it.
cost can vary in the uk.
go to the hospital or see your GP
about this severe neck pain.
ask if you have a herniated disk in your neck.
and ask to get an MRI scan of your neck spine as soon as possible.
