I have constant pain going down my left arm from a pinched nerve. Anti-inflammatory pills gave no relief apart from Refpain which when first taken helped for a night, and then was not effective. I had weeks of sleepless nights and constant pain prevailed 24/7. It worsened on attempting to lie down and getting up. Upon reading online about Homeopathic treatment, I went in for it. It was miraculous after a few hours and am now pain free.

A pinched nerve in my neck was diagnosed after an MRI. I have been suffering from terrible intermittent headaches and pain in my arms and legs. My doctor has prescribed diazepam and 30/500 co-codamol.

I have a bulge next to my spine in my neck, which is a pinched nerve that causes pain in my neck, chest, and back. Also, I have weakness in my arm and pain that radiates down to my hand. I was in an accident and now have pain on my right side too. I’m taking gabapentin but considering changing over to Lyrica.
