I am in such dreadful pain from a suspected herniated cervical disc that i have no quality of life. My painkillers knock me out for most of the day/night. I am having physio but this is doing little to help. This has been going on for over three weeks and seeems I will have to wait another six weeks before I can get an MRI scan (I live in South Wales) Can anyone tell me if this is usual and will it get better?
Just yesterday I developed pins and needles into my hand (pain aleady to finger tips). One Dr told me that if i developed this or any numbness to let them know straight away, which I did, and all they did was to increase pain medication, which doesn't do a lot. Seems they don't care!
