Toothache in my arm. Nerve root damage

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello, wondering if anyone can help, I have what i can only describe as toothache in my arm. Everytime i move my arm i feel like a cat is scratching my veins. (im right handed). it feels like the pain keeps travelling back & forth from my elbow to my wrist. Doc prescribed pregabalin & Co-Codamol. (Pain now for 5 months) This took edge of a bit but just made me sleepy & clumsy. Nerve conduction study come back as problem in C7 - C8 area. But cervical MRI showed nothing wrong. Finally saw a neurologist who said. There is some evidence of nerve root damage. But nothing he can do. So refering me to pain management team. Is this right? So now have to wait another 3 minths for that?. It wasnt the answer i was expecting.
