Herniated Cervical Disc in spine at C6/7

Hello I am hoping that someone can help me.11yrs ago I was in an accident and needed disc surgery for C4/5. 3 years later they had to do another surgery with a fusion at the same level. I had a very long recovery process and Homepathy was very useful in helping me recover from chronic pain. I still suffered daily from neck pain but didn't use drugs for relief.
Recently however, my husband and I went to visit his parents and on the trip back home which was quite long, I fell asleep in the plane with my seat in the upright position. I did not recline my chair as the people in back of me complained they needed more room.
I regret complying with their complaint. Soon afterwards I noticed my neck pain became unbearable in the late afternoon and pretty soon I was losing an hour of 'up' time daily.

Then I awoke in excruciating pain in my chest, and my husband thought I was having a heart attack; I was calm but declined to call an ambulance as I deeply believed it was muscular in nature. And actually it was, my muscles were seizing up from the ribs around to the front of my chest.
I took Mag Phos 1m and finding a little relief I took several doses each day until that stopped.

Soon the pain localized to my neck primarily but also my left arm, the bicep, the elbow and the wrist.

This has gone on now for 5 weeks until now I can only get up for brief periods, or to go to the bathroom. I immediately began taking arnica 1m and am still taking mag phos also.

I am icing the neck through the day which gives relief but I am needing to take 800 mg advil 3 times a day, Oxycotin each day, and also a flexiril at night. The advil was very effective at first and I saw improvement of about 40% but after a few weeks taking with food, my stomach could not tolerate it anymore.
Within 3 days I had another exacerbation and am very frustrated and depressed over this terrible condition.

I have severe neck pain constantly now, severe arm pain and want to know if you can suggest something else or help me. Please I need to be able to function. I am very despondent over this situation. Thank You.

Thank you for your response. I am wondering if I should also take Arn 1m as it helps with pain, and also Mag Phos 1m still. Is that alright?

You had enough of Arnica 1M. Now it is time for Rhus Tox. Mag Phos you have taken in too high a potency and for too many times.

Wow. Thank you so much, I am taking the Rhus Tox as you suggested. Thank You.
