In need of some advice from a neck spiney.

I woke up about a week and half ago with severe nerve pain in my right arm. It went all the way into my fingers and I could barely grasp anything with that hand. This is the first time my hand and arm has hurt like this. It is usually just my shoulder, it has been bothering me for years. So after four days of agonizing in pain, I made a doctors appointment with my GP. Couldn't go thru my NS because he has never seen me for my neck. The NS's office wants to see if i can get my GP to order a cervical MRI. Here's my issue my arm has quit hurting. My doctor's appt is next Wednesday. My husband says I should go ahead and go to the doctor's appointment. I just don't want to get in the exam room and the Dr look at me like I am nuts because my arm is feeling better. Should I cancel my appointment?
