Right elbow pain severe - cervical problem?
I have been having pain in my right elbow for over a year now. It has gotten really bad the last 3 weeks. Have had numerous cortizone shots but it always comes back. One orthapedic said he can't do anymore cortizone shots. Will need to do an mri and possibly surgery. Well, I did not want that. So I went to a chiropractor hoping to get relief without surgery. He xrayed my neck and said I had severe DDD, bone spurs and my neck curves the other way. He asked if I had been in a car accident. I said no. He said, Well, you have had some kind of severe trauma to the neck. Could have done it riding a roller coaster, anything.
So now I am going BACK to an orthopedic and get a second opinion. Scared of what he will say.........
