Huge Improvement Pain-wise  
So far most of the gains made by the cortisone shot have held, with some pain returning to my right arm but nothing like the horrible stabbing pain I had previously. He said next time he could put more of the cortisone on the right side so maybe that will finally do it. I'm just glad to not be in extreme pain 24/7 and moving ice packs from place to place. I am still careful not to overdo it and still babying my neck and back so I can keep from getting the nerve so inflamed again. I know I still have compression so at some point that may need "work" of some kind.

Such a relief. I wish I knew how long it was going to last.

I am glad to hear you've gotten relief. I've been interested in reading of your progress, as my husband seems to be going through this same condition right now. His neck compression causing nerve pain down his right arm. He is currently doing neck traction 4x daily, plus on steroids to reduce the inflammation, plus other meds for pain. If this doesn't help him, then the dr. has some other treatments before going to the cortisone.

I hope your relief 'sticks' :))
