I had an MRI done a couple of weeks ago of my neck. Had and epidural cortisone shot last week and am currently still in an immense amount pain, muscle spasm all up in my shoulders neck and chest. I get tingling in my arms and face and now my arms feel heavy and i can't life past my chest.
This is from my MRI report:
Diffuse degenerative changes are present, most prominent at C4-5 and C5-6. At c5-6 there is minimal central and moderate foraminlal stenosos secondary to disc bulging/osteophytic spurring
C4-5 demonstrates borderline central spinal stenosis with minimal to moderate foraminal narrowing.
C6-7 demonstrates 4mm broad-based bulging of the disc in the midline, compressing the ventral aspect of the spinal cord and causing moderate central spinal stenosis. Minimal left foraminal narrowing is present at this level.
I went to the ER Friday night and they gave me Soma & Vicodin that help dull the pain but as soon a s it wears off I'm in even more pain than before. Would these results cause all the pain i've been in.
