Hello all.  I have been suffering for a few days with a pinched nerve in mt neck at C7.  This has meant a lot of pain and numbness/tingle in my right arm.  Doc says it will take time for nerve to recover and fysio is on tap.  Just wondering if any of you have been through this and how long it took to get back to normal practice/playing?

Thanks much

Right.
Good advice, Andrew.
Same here.
I've had similar troubles including 2 surgeries for nerve damage in hands and more recently, a trigger thumb.
Currently all ten digits used in playing guitar are fully operational (despite what listeners might suspect to the contrary).

 +1  same experience here, no replacement for diligent physical therapy, no matter how long it takes...  Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

As others have commented, stay the course and do the work! It'll pay off. PT for two herniated cervical discs was my choice over surgery and I've never regretted the decision, same for two lumbar herniated discs. Tore my right rotator cuff a week ago which exposed the existence of spurs and degeneration, but one single PT session and I feel 75% better already. An occasional visit to a chiropractor has also been of great benefit. Good luck!
