I'm very thankful that I googled and found this website. Years ago before my hysterectomy I found a website that proved to be very helpful and a good support group for me to go to. Now that I've been in terrible pain for about a month, and finding out that I have bulging on the C6 & c7 discs, I've found another website with forums to hopefully help me get through this. I'm to see my Neurologist this coming thursday and was told verbally over the phone that the neuro surgeon thinks I need surgery and he's sending me to this neurologist to see if he agrees. I'm scared, I'm shocked that surgery was mentioned first, and not after therapy. I'm concerned that the doctor might be jumping the gun a little. Anyways, until then, I'm sitting here with severe pain in the left shoulder blade, shoulder, neck and going down the left arm into the hand. I've been on Percuset now for a month, and am afraid that I will get addicted to it. (I hate taking meds). So thanks "spine-health" for providing me with a new support group.
