Symptoms are as follows..
I developed pain and weakness in arm when I did weights approx 5 years ago
Pain did go away when I stopped doing weights
I have seen Chriro, physio and osteo, accupuncture u name it
I have no pins and needles- just general stiffness now in neck
However when I do weights or resistance training the pain becomes more intense- i.e. like a hot flame on my neck

Hi, best will be to consult neurologist, also please change your lifestyle. Physiotherapy sessions do help a lot, wearing cervical collar for couple of days might help. Pain killers along with hot compressions are generally recommended for this situation. In resistant cases, surgery is the last option. New tecniques like microdiscetomy is quite safe.
