The docs seem to be puzzled that my MRI's only show "mild DDD" (mild bilateral foramenal stenosis C3-4 with mild uncovertebral joint hypertropy). Mild DDD and small osteophytes at a couple other cervical segments.
Mild DDD in thoracic spine as well.
But here's the thing: I FEEL LIKE DEATH WARMED OVER. I am in intense pain every day, my fingertips hurt when I type, my neck is in constant spasm, my range of motion has been limited, etc.
Are there others out there that have "mild" DDD on imaging, but the pain level is anything but mild?
