Most recently (over the past 2 days) I have been experiencing an increased loss of strength in my left arm (nearly 75% of what's normal)...coinciding with unrelenting headache and an increased amount of neck and left shoulder blade pain. On 4/28, I had an ESI at C6/C7 and have had no improvement. The 2nd ESI is now scheduled for 5/19 with my PM Doc but I'm wondering if I shouldn't be waiting that long for some kind of intervention.
I'm normally not a complainer but this is getting bad, constant throbbing, deep/dull aching that my pain meds aren't really touching. I also am receiving PT twice a week and Chiropractic twice a week for the additional lumbar issues I have (failed back/laminectomy syndrome) and they do some massage work on my neck at the same time(there's herniated C6/C7 with bone spurs)...is that possibly making matters worse??
Thanks folks, I appreciate any advice you could offer.
