Just to introduce myself here, my name is Crystal and i have been diagnosed with bulging discs and spurs on my spine. I'm not sure of the medical terms but am awaiting a date for surgery on my neck somewhere between the c3 and c6 vert. At the present time I suffer from pain and burning in my neck and between the shoulders. My arms and hands are so sensitive to anything cold or touching and moving of my fingers. The surgeon told me I should have surgery as soon as he can,(about a month from when I met him) that without the operation (spinal fusion) I will probably be in a wheelchair in about 2 yrs. It's been a month now and still haven't heard anything.
I have the most caring attentive spouse ever and family support.
I'm looking forward to reading and maybe asking questions, and meeting people with similar spinal problems here.
