Neck and back pain with numbness and weakness in left limbs

I am 30 years old female and presently I am struggling with pain and stiffness in my neck and back region. While exercising I stretched myself too much while I was standing and clasping my both hands behind with my head facing downwards. I think it was like a jerking sensation for my back and I just fell down crying in pain. I was feeling stiff in the back with acute pain
only till one week when suddenly I realized that my left side was having a
pinching pain (both in the arm and leg)which use to disappear also on its own.
I was told to take Ibuprofen (800mg) and flexaril by my doctor for somedays
but this didn't relieve the pain from my left side or pain/stiffness in my neck.
Soon I started feeling numbness and weakness in my left palm especially below my thumb which was not allowing me to hold/open
anything for too long. After going through your site I started RUX tux 200
(twice a day) but still I am having weakness and numbness in my left side
-arm, palm and stiffness in my knees(if I walk fast) along with my upper neck
region just below the head. I hope you can understand the frustration it
brings when you can't do anything without struggling in pain and stiffness.
Please suggest me a homeopathic treatment for my problem.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I have tried Arnica 30 (thrice) recently for my neck pain but I am not sure which one to try i.e wet/dry dose as im taking dry dose.Are there any suggestions for the same as my neck is sometimes very stiff and I feel some numbness in left arm going till my palms.Just to add that since I am doing physiotheraphy now adays it sometimes aggrevates my neck pain.

Dear Menkari.

Have you had any x-rays etc of the affected area? If not, this is really the first thing which should be done to ascertain exactly what has happened, ESPECIALLY as you are experiencing numbness, which is not a good sign.

Once such tests have been carried out, and if there is no actual physical damage which could be the cause of the condition, a remedy could then be recommended.

Dear Hahnemania,

My X-ray came normal as mentioned by my orthopedics.I am going for MRI today so will update you soon.

I am taking Arnica-30 and Hypericum-200 in wet doses (two tbsp/day) after going through this forum.I have already tried ruxtux-200 for 2 days but still use to feel numbness.

Pls help..as Im really unaware of my problem.

sorry it was orthopedician..

Well the first thing I would do is to stop the remedies you are taking.

We prescribe only one remedy at a time, and this is based on symptomology, not on a hit and miss approach, and we also do not give repeated indefinite doses of the same potency.

Let us know the results of the MRI, and I will then be happy to advise you further.

Best wishes.
