I have suffered with headaches, difficulty breathing, chest pain, pain between the shoulder blades, vertigo, and "shocks" that run through my face, mouth and tongue numbness and difficulty thinking, arm/wrist/hand pain and numbness for 2 years. I have been to 4 diffierent doctors in the past 2 years and none of them ever thought to do an MRI. I was treated for everything from heartburn to tension headaches. I finally had an MRI last week, due to the fact that the Vertigo was causing me to stumble, which showed a herniated c5 c6 disc. I will have to wait another month or so to get into a nuerosurgeon and I'm just wondering if anyone could tell me what to expect? :??
