chronic nerve root irritation (clicking sound)
Anyone have any experience with this? How did you go about fixing it?
My doctor thought that my disc is herniated but MRI came back negative. He tell me to try to straighten up with good posture. But, good posture is impossible for me, If I try it I end up irritating the nerve so badly I'm crippled. So I'm stuck with hunched posture since the only way I get relief.
After sitting or lieing flat on my back for some time when I stand up I hear & feel my neck make a rapid click, click, click sound, usually three times in a row over a few seconds. Then a little bit time after I feel aching pain down into front part of shoulder and start getting spasm that sometimes so bad it makes my whole body freeze(like electric shock).
The damn Clicking just goes on and on, When I wake up in the morning after sleeping I start day off with clicking sound. Nerve just keeps getting irritated.
After I saw chiropractor, he did neck adjustment where he cracked my neck to side, I felt short term relief for 3 days but then suddenly it just tightened up so badly and clicking/spams got worse taken to another extreme level of pain I hadn't felt before.
God I can't take this pain much longer I'm having suicidal thoughts as I suffer with it for years and seen so many doctor.
