Just wanted to share the problem and the fix.
A year ago, I lifted something too heavy with my left arm and felt an intense funny bone pain down the entire length of my arm. omg! Talk about HURT!
Went to my primary care doc and he gave me Valium to take every 3 hours. This actually made me mad at the time because he's been treating me for anxiety/depression for years...and I *thought* he was simply treating THAT again. Well, hell...it worked like a charm! Unbelievable! I went in expecting to get pain medication and got an awesome muscle relaxer instead from the smartest Doc in my life. This primary care doc has been smarter/wiser than all the neuro's put together!
Hope this helps somebody.
