First I will let you now a little about myself. I am a 25 year old mother of two. A 3 yr old and a 4 months old. Since February of 2009 I have been having left side of neck, shoulder, and now arm pain and numbness. It started off as a pinching in the top left part of my neck and has now progressed into a aching, burning, pinching constant pain. I cannot feel the upper part of my left arm and my left forearm aches constantly. I have had x-rays, cortisone injections and an MRI. My primary md said that there was nothing wrong with my MRI. They did find some osteophytes in c2 to c7. I have been to a orthopedic surgeon, physical therapy and to no avail have had no relief. I am a stay-at-home mom and I have had to find daycare for my children instead of them staying with me all day. I find that it is unbearable for me to do any of the daily activities that I enjoyed before pain. I am now seeing a spine speacialist who has recommended spinal injection, but I am very scared and how can they do a procdure and not know what is causing the pain? Also I saw my primay md 2x for this problem, She perscribed percocet and flexiril. I took the percocet as needed which ended up being one a day half in the morn and half at night. I am allergic to NSAIDS and the flexiril didn't have any effect except for making me sleep without hearing my newborn in the middle of the night. Since the two scripts of 30 percocets my primary md says she won't give me anymore pain medication at all. She said that they are addicting. I am not worried about them being addicting, I am in chronic, excruciating pain and they take the pain away and allow me to function as I normally would without pain. If anyone can relate or has any suggestions of what I should do please let me know. I am soo depressed about this whole thing.
