I have cervical pain radiating to the right shoulder, neck, and arm until fingers. I have this problem for the past eight months and I am currently on medications for diabetics.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
The symptoms that you have described point towards cervical disc issues with a small disc and bone (osteophyte) that is irritating to the right-sided nerve at C5-6 level as mentioned in the MRI reports. Usually, such cases heal within 6-8 weeks. On and off pain is common. But persistent pain in the arm and hand is nagging and decreases productivity especially if it is a dominant hand.
We need to take MRI films to interpret the severity of the disc problem, know the handedness, know the exact location of the pain and if associated with tingling or numbness, and any weakness in the hand or arm.
Until then do warm water fomentation. Apply pain killer gel locally over the neck and arm. Avoid lifting weights or jerks to the neck, and avoid bad roads.
