  • Typically pain in the arms stemming from the neck is due to a disc problem. Whether you call it slipped or bulging disc does not matter. The disc can press on some of the nerves which travel to the arm and hence you can get symptoms in the arms. However this is not always due to the physical pressure but is likely to be from inflammation

  • Many people have slipped discs but haven't got pain

  • Sometimes people can have pain but not a visible disc problem

  • 90% of bulging discs heal on their own within 3 months
