I have been having recurring disc compression problems, most recently at C7-T1. the pain, burning and tingling is most pronounced when standing. I also think there is something going on at either C4 or above as I constantly have pain and discomfort on rotation. I have gone to the orthopedist who did my 2 surgeries in 2008 and he is confused. The MRI showed no abnormality, herniation or possible cause of the radiculopathy. Yesterday I had a selective nerve root block injection which was not the most pleasant of experiences :> but I'll have to wait at lest two more weeks to see if helps.
I have heard of stand up MRI machines and am wanting to see if the doc can Rx one for me. My symptoms are pronounced upon standing, not so much while lying down on the machine. The ortho guy is confused because the test results from earlier in September were inconclusive. And that's when I started thinking of one of these machines.
Thanks for your help.
