I've got a spasm in my neck that is affecting my neck, sholder, and my whole left arm. I did not get any pain meds but plan on calling up for some tomorrow. My spine in my neck is completely straight instead of curved liked it should be. The muscles in my neck are so tight that that they are pressed tight against my spine making it straight. I have no reflex in my left arm. I should have had this checked out years ago as it just progressively got worse over the years. The only reason why I didn't was because I was scared I would need surgery again on my spine.

Thanks Kevin. I went to the doctor Thursday and that's how I knew my neck spine is compeletly straight from the x-rays they took. I have flexeril to take which is a muscle relaxant. I will also be going to physical therapy.
