STUPID me!!! Okay, I retired a month ago, and as a 'treat' to myself, took a "doctor break." I've been referred back to a Neurologist because I am a 'puzzle'..okay, not a biggie. Well, I bent sideways to pick up my Chausie (small hybrid jungle cat), and as I came up, I had a loud 'kerpop' followed by instant pain at the base of the left side of my neck, top of the shoulder blade and then all the way down my arm to my middle, index finger and thumb! ! I will be calling the NS tomorrow, and possibly my surgeon so I can get an MRI asap. This ticks me off to no end!
I have no question in my brain that more likely than not, I (gee lucky me) herniated out to the left now, for C5/6/7 - the crack get bigger maybe? Grrrrr... This will sound weird okay? My surgery to 'revise' was put on hold due to an EMG finding of Neuropathy, did this 'kerpop' maybe move it back on the playing table? I am saying C5/6/7 because the pain is biceps and triceps - no weakness or numbness to the left - just the pain! STUPID!!!!!!! I am one that stays positive most of the time, and still trying to, but dag-gum it, can't win! I HATE Nerves! Whew!!! Thanks for listening....going back to my happy place if it is still there!
