Hey guys here is my story.
About one month ago I got some pain in my neck from lifting a box from the car. After about a week it disappeared thanks to some anti inflammatories. I went back to badminton and the next day was in extreme pain in my neck with a nerve pain down my arm. I had to take strong prescription pain killers to sleep as I couldn’t lie down. Over the last three weeks the pain and muscle spasms stopped but my index finger on my left hand went numb and I get pain down my arm when I lie back.
When I wake in the morning I have extreme pain down my arm, aching in the shoulder and a light tingling in my other arm and left leg, also i am light headed and week in the legs. There is a point on the back of my neck which is extremely painful to touch. Even a light brush with a finger causes pain. I can’t lie down and although the pain has gone the nerve pain hurts. I am resorting to sleeping upright!
I have had an x ray which was fine and am awaiting an mri scan. My concern is that i cam causing damage to myself by lying down. I am really concerned about this!
Any help appreciated
