Nerve infection

I do not know what topic regarding my wife's neck pain and also affecting her arm and figures. Can you suggest what kind of specialist she should see. She went to her family doctor and he only gave her medicines of BACLOFEN and IBUPROFEN.

Because she had this problem for a few months already, I think she is better to see a specialist. We live in Norwalk, CA 90650

Best regards,
Tim G.

If her pain is not relieved by pain medications I would suggest that she does see a Neurosurgeon and gets a neuro+spine evaluation and an MRI of the neck. She could have a slipped disc in the neck as a cause of her problems.
