Hi, I am happy to have found this site. I hope to get some answers. I am a 31 y.o. woman.I have been experiencing right shoulder pain and headaches for many years. This past year numbness and tingling in my right arm, and sometimes both arms at night. I was dx with Carpal Tunnel last year. Then I finally saw an Orthapedic Surgeon that ordered an MRI ( which I had on Wed).
I don't have the full report but I do know I have moderate left foraminal narrowing at my C7 and T1. I have an appt with him on Wednesday, I have been researching and unsure what to expect. This week the pain has been especially bad. I already did physical therapy for 6 weeks, and take NSAID's. Is surgery my best option?
I am freaking out a little.I am a nurse, and I am also getting married in October. So all of these expenses are being thrown at me. I can't be out of work for too long. Oh boy. Please help!
