As you can see in my signature, my lumbar was (mostly) fixed almost two years ago. Had a series of caudal injections to calm my lumbar spine this past spring. Now it is my C-spine's turn to flare up.
Had a new MRI two weeks ago which disclosed I had severe DDD, cervical stenosis with radiculopathy C4 through C7, a spur at C6 and bulging disks at C5/C6 and C6/C7. The result is neck, shoulder, outer arm, elbow and wrist pain.
Fortunately no numbness or rupture(s).... yet. All of this is on the right side.
I am scheduled for ESI to my C-spine this coming Monday; and another one in two weeks. In reading through the C-spine forum there (as usual) appears to be mixed results with the cervical ESI. Hopefully this will provide some relief. In the interim, I have been re-introduced to Lyrica which works wonders and given a TENS to carry around.
Will pop in and update the results from Monday
. And maybe see if there is need for another wagon train from AZ to some secret private island
)( . The older members should remember that spiney trip.
Hope you all have a pain free day!
