Customer Question

Hi Pearl,
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: I’ve been having some pain in my right side, especially shoulder, chest and back. It’s quite sharp and intensifies when I breathe. My right arm feels a bit weird too. The same kind of feeling when you rest your head on it for too long. Should I be worried?
JA: Have you ever dealt with this before? Are you having any shortness of breath?
Customer: Not that I can remember. No shortness of breath
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I think that’s everything, thank you

Hi, this is Dr Ansari, welcome to JA.

Your symptoms give the impression as you have Cervical Radiculopathy, the intervertebral disc is pushed and causing compression or spinal canal stenosis.

You should go for MRI- Cervical spine, and while waiting for it can take Naproxen( Aleve ) and do physiotherapy.
