I am 28 year male. I developed neck, shoulder and arm pain about 5 months ago (last week of Jan 2011). I lifted a 80 lb weight in gym I think that's was the cause. In Jan, i had lot of pain (9/10 on scale) while standing and setting in the chair (for 2 weeks) my doctor looking at my MRI scan which showed little bit of bulge in disc in between C5 & C6 - referred me to physiotherapist eventually the pain reduced but didn't become zero... whenever i do any activity using my right arm the pain reoccurs.. Today again after 5 months i went to gym started doing some free weight exercise within 3 hours the pain has become intense it's painful to turn my head to the right or stretch my neck from side to side. the pain is traveling from neck to shoulder and move down the arm.
In between i went chiropractor for 2nd opinion while going to physiotherapist and nothing worked out.
I am wondering it would be problem with the nerve that goes from neck or cervical to arm which has got affected.. I am confused whether should i consult a chiropractor or neurologist for this problem.
