Hi, I had a spinal cord compression in 2003, and it took months for the doctors to send me for surgery, even though I had severe burning from my neck down, and progressive weakness of all 4 limbs. After the surgery, the burning got 100 times worse!!!, but then went away all together after about 1yr. My strength also came back.
2 months ago, I lifted something heavy, and I began to get severe arm pain, which turned to burning, and then weakness set in. The burning spread down body to legs, and my legs got weak too. The MRI shows 2 discs c3/c4, and c4/c5..herniated and one is abutting the spinal cord. I have same symptoms of first time. I have surgery in a few days. Afraid of this burning getting worse like last time. Im so nervous.
Anyone have any advice or can share their experiences? thank you.
