Second opinion] I'm experiencing pain in my neck and shoulder running down my right arm. Hard to turn my head or lift my arm.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the neck pain? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?

No numbness or tingling. It's been going on for 3 days and gets worse each day.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have been diagnosed with a root nerve disorder but no one recomended a treatment other than pain pills and I don't want to take them.
