Pain in my arm
Last week i had back pain but only on the left side, it got worse and eventually my neck again only on the left side was sore.
For the last few days my left arm has been sore, and now my hand is sore.
It feels sore but weird!

Dear Anonymous
this sounds like a severe muscle spasm - it causes pressure on the nerve going to the arm. I would suggest that you see a physiotherapist as pills alone won't help for this. You can try something like Neurofen for the pain if you are not allergic to it.
