Arm pain (Brachialgia)
Brachialgia is the upper body equivalent to sciatica.
Mild cases of brachialgia can be treated with over the counter pain killers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. If your symptoms persist or increase see your GP. Physiotherapy may also be helpful.
If conservative treatments are not successful you may be referred to a spinal consultant. They may order x-rays or an MRI scan. Based on the results of these procedures your consultant may recommend a further course of treatment.
