Alright...the doctor left a message on my machine with my diagnosis because I wasn't home. He said that I have a herniated disk that is pressing on the nerve. He said if I am not having a great deal of pain then I can see if it heals itself. If I am then he will send me to a neurosurgeon. I have to call them tomorrow. Why a neurosurgeon? I am not going to have surgery. Why not just an orthopedic doctor or someone who can manage me without surgery?
