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.

That’s great that you will speak to your doctor on Friday.

I don’t really know about nerve pain, but for pain in general, a hot bath with Epsom salts, followed by rubbing Magnesium oil all over your arm, might help a bit.

Also... look up heart attack symptoms and see if any apply. Hopefully it isn’t that!

Definitely not a heart attack (even though it is my left arm), I have magnesium oil, I will give it a go thank you.
