No redness. Just a little pain when I move it above my.head. The only pain is the burning that I feel in the crease where the triceps and shoulder join.
Health Professional: Onlinedoc, General Physician replied 2 years ago

Hi,

Sorry for late reply.

Burning and pain is almost always associated with nerve involvement. It might not be your neck, but could by your shoulder, or even in the arm itself.

So you should try some self care remedies until you see your doctor in next few days.

Do gentle massage with topical diclofenac sodium on back of neck,shoulder and upper arm.

And warm compresses can be tried.

You can try OTC capsaicin cream and Advil also.

Do neck stretching,shoulder movements on slow pace.

Avoid sleeping on affected site.

X-ray/MRI can be done for further evaluation.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.

Your satisfaction is our goal.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
