The symptoms include pain at the level of the problem (i.e. neck or back etc) and pain that may radiate down the arm or leg (depending on where the problem is). In more advanced cases, muscle weakness or sensory symptoms such as tingling or numbness may occur. A radiculopathy is often diagnosed based on history, physical examination, and MRI of the spine. Treatment includes anti-inflammatories, pain medications, sometimes physical therapy, and in some cases surgery.

Hello! The pain in your left arm from shoulder all the way down can be due to cervical spinal issues. As you are a manual labourer it is very important to follow ergonomics in your work space. If you have damaged or put pressure on your neck region then this may result. It can also be due to local injuries at your arm, elbow or wrist. It is difficult to diagnose without scans and a proper examination. I would suggest you to follow up with an orthopedician. Take care!

My husband suffered from shoulder & arm pain after a stroke until a physiotherapist (Dr. Vasa) taught me how to do certain fairly simple manipulations of his shoulder and scapula, which relieved the pain after about a week of doing the manipulations. She tells me that what she taught me is absolutely routine and is known to every PT & OT. If that's true, I don't know why no one showed it to me in the months my husband was in residential rehab.
