Hi im new to this so bare with me. Here's my problem. I was hurt at work back in april and was sent to a doc. through the hospital i work out. i was having tingling down my arm and burning in my neck. they thought was a pinched nerve. well i lost all feeling in my neck and back on the left side so they sent me for an mri come to find out i have 2 herniated discs my c5 c6 is a small herniated and my c6 c7 is a large protusion pressing on my spinal cord. ive been on 8 different meds. and seen 2 docs. the one wanted me to do the shots or a double fusion. so i went to another doc. and he took me off all my pain meds and said i was too young for a double fusion and through me on high anti imflamatories. which nothing has worked! they pain is increasing and im tired of complaining i just want my life back. i dont know what else to do they just threw me back to work and basically told me i would get better. im 23 years old. thanks and im sorry this is so long.
