Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I will be happy to help you today. I'm sorry to hear of your neck pain. What you are describing is most likely coming from your neck (numbness in your 5th digit and arm) caused by the position your were placed in for the mammogram. Apply an ice pack to your neck and begin an NSAID such as Ibuprofen (if not contraindicated due to allergy/GI problems). After 48 hours begin moist warm compresses. If the pain does not resolve in 48 hours you may need to have a MRI with contrast of your neck. Discuss with your doctor.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
