I doubt I put this post in the right place, if so I apologize. I have been experiencing pain radiating down my right arm in to my ring and pinky finger for the last fours days. It is very painful almost like sciatica pain in my leg. I have had five lumbar surgeries, I have a little experience with sciatica. Its usually just my shoulder that hurts and its tolerable. This is driving me crazy though. I know I have a bulged disc in my neck, I just don't know what level. I have tried taking some tylenol for the pain but didn't even take the edge off. My question is do I just go ahead and call the neurosurgeon I see for my back and see what they can do or should set up an appointment with my primary care physician?
