I was a member of this site before my surgery and couldn't remember my login. therefore, I've created a new one. I remeber from before someone had posted a chat that showed which areas each disc affected. I would really like to view that again. Can some direct me to it please.

Thanks,

    I used to post a map of the spine with the various discs.
    Since then, I have been able to present much better information.

  • Thanks so much Ron.
  • Thanks, I was wondering if you still have a link to that map? I'm looking for something that I've only see on that map.
    Thanks,

  • #o I didn't see it. Sorry and thank you so much for your help. ;)
  • I sent you a PM with a link to a Spine chart/map expaining what each vertabre affects. I'm sure it isn't exactly what you're looking for, but maybe it'll help a little.

    Example:

    Vertabre: 1C
    Areas: Blood supply to the head, pituitary gland, scalp, bones of the face, brain, inner and middle ear, sympathetic nervous system
    Effects (Symptoms):Headaches, nervousness, insomnia, head colds, high blood pressure, migrain headaches, nervous breakdowns, amnesia, chronic tiredness, dizziness
