I have the most awful pain in my armpit with pain in my lower arm and numbness in my hand. I have compressed discs in my neck and I think they have flared up, I take amitriptyline for the pain but it is not touching it today, is there anything else I can take to get me through to Friday when I have a phone consult with my GP. I've tried codeine without success, holding the baby is damned near impossible atm.
