I am just after some advice. I have a problem with the vertebrae in my neck and this causes nerve pain down my arm. I was referred for physio, and by the time I got a first appointment (about 6 weeks) the pain had pretty much gone, but I was still left with pins and needles. After the first appointment, I was in a lot of pain again for a week, which again subsided, but only with the help of strong anti-inflammatories. The physion didnt seem to think this was normal but then again didnt say it wasnt, just kind of said 'Wait and see' The second apppointment (2 weeks later) then caused exactly the same thing. The pain now gets so bad it reduces me to tears. My question is - is this a normal reaction or not? Should I continue with the treatment, or should I stop it and hope the pain and pins and needles goes away on its own, as it was doing before I started the treatment in the first place! I would call the physio but she's on holiday until my next appointment.
