I am new to this, but I need to reach out to find some help. I the back of my head a year ago. There was an MRI taken at that time that showed 3 bulging discs in my cervical spine. My symptoms at that time included: neck pain, shoulder pain, and pain, with numbness and tingling, down my right arm along the biscep and into my thumb area. The first approach was physical therapy. About 2 weeks into PT I began having pain down both arms and down the back side into my pinky. The next approach was a steriod shot, not sure exactly which type. The same day after the shot, I could barely move. I was in extreme pain. As the pain at the injection site began to lessen, a few days later, I got an intense headache that put me in tears. This injection was performed back in August, I believe, and no form of treatment has been performed since.
My biggest area of concern has been the weakness in my legs. This started about September. After walking for about 15-30 min. my legs get weak. I have to concentrate to move them and they cramp so badly that I cant sleep.
I am going in to recieve some nurve root blocking shots this week, but no one seems to be taking the weakness in my legs seriously. What do you think???
P.S. This is a worker's comp case, which seems to be alot of the delay in any sort of treatment.
Thanks for listening
