So, I think it's a pinched nerve because the main area is on my spine, below the nape of the neck/between my shoulder blades. The pain is radiating out down my spine and when I try to move it radiates down each of my arms, to about my elbow. This doesn't feel like a pulled muscle or a knot or anything I've ever had before. I woke up with it yesterday and it's still going strong, though not quite as bad. Granted, I was much busier yesterday and tired to push through a lot more activities than I am today so I can't tell if it's getting better or I'm just not aggravating it as much. I really don't want to go to the doctor if I don't need to but I also don't want to do any permanent damage. I've been taking aspirin and used an ice pack last night. Neither really seems to have helped. Any other suggestions?
