Why is this so hard?
Originally my pain began in my shoulder, halfway between the outside of my arm and my neck. It started when I was leaning my weight on my left arm and reaching for something and I heard a rubber-band snap like sound. After that my shoulder got tighter and tighter, and then the tingling began.
I went to the ER because everything from my neck to my arm was pins and needless, scared me...didn't know if it was a stroke or what.
Ever since then it's gotten worse, but multiple MRI's showed narrowing of the C6-C7 disc space, but an EMG and Myleogram(sp) seemed to show nothing. I had epidurals and cortizone injections that did nothing to my neck and shoulder respectively.
I'm having another EMG done soon, and I just want this solved. My shoulder is still immensely weak, twitchy and sore with nerve symptoms and headaches down to my shoulder blade and left hand/forefinger side.
I just hope they can pinpoint what causes it, as I've been told everything from subacromical bursitis to cervical radiculopathy. Does anyone with experience in a similar issue know how they solved the source of your pain?
