Neck, shoulder or arm pain that is not getting better? You may have an undiagnosed herniated disc

Updated: Mar 1

Persistent neck, shoulder or arm pain, despite your trip to the family Doctor may be an undiagnosed herniated cervical disc.

Although most herniated disks occur in the low back, they can also frequently occur in the neck. Signs & symptoms depend on where the disk is situated & whether the disk is pressing on a nerve. They usually affect one side of the body.

• Arm pain. If your herniated disk is in your neck, you'll typically feel the most pain in your shoulder & arm. This pain might shoot into your arm or leg when you cough, sneeze or move into certain positions. Pain is often described as sharp or burning.

• Numbness or tingling. People who have a herniated disk often have radiating numbness or tingling in the body part served by the affected nerves.

• Weakness. Muscles served by the affected nerves tend to weaken. This can cause you to stumble, or affect your ability to lift or hold items.
