Thank you for the input,

I shall try my best to explain the condition. Sorry for the delay due to problems with the site. The pain down the arm sounds more likely due to pinching of nerve. This can occur at the back spine or it can occur in the limb too.Though there are few other causes of tingling & numbness like deficiency states, diabetes, thyroid, nerve disorders like MS,neuropathies etc but nerve impingement sounds more likely. Analgesics with antiinflammatory actions like ibuprofen can be continued. You can apply warm compress.

Any query, please feel free to ask.
It will be my privilege to assist you.
