I have had nerve pain radiating from left side of my neck into my shoulder, elbow and pins and needle into the thumb and next two fingers. My report from a scan showed a rotatory scoliosis convex to the left centred on L3 with lateral spondylosis of L3 on L4. L4/L5 show there is a hypertrophic degenerative change of the facet joints bilaterally with ligamentum flavum hypertrophy. These results date back 6mths ago. I have been having chiro treatment quite successfully but now the condition is getting worse again. I am taking capadex and diazepan for the pain, but they don't seem to give me much relief. The only way I can get relief for a short period is to pull my head upwards away from the neck with my other hand and this relieves the tension on the nerve. Have you got any other suggestions?
