I saw my Dr. yesterday and saw the neck x-ray report that I have abnormal curve of my neck and DDD at c6 and C-7 nerve impinging. I've had problems with tennis elbow for a few years and had that treated but now I still get pain and numbness only to my left arm. Sometimes I get sharp pains in my index finger. I sometimes get sudden spasms in my neck that catch me off guard with shooting pain. I started taking Lyrica again and my Dr. thinks that will help.
I'm concerned that the numbness will be permanent. I wonder if I should get an EMG? My main issues are lumber of course but wonder if I should get injections for my neck also. Thank goodness no problems with thoracic. Charry
