When my MRI Results came back, it said I had 3 bulging discs, encroachment (tightly hugging my thecal sac) of c6-c7 with osteophyte (Arthritis or bone spur?). I also have Scoliosis(not in Cervical area). My accident completely straightened my neck, twisted it slightly and now my head is not sitting on my neck correctly so my neck is tilted to the side.
The accident happened on Sept 20, it hasn't even been a month and Arthritis has already set up. I'm scared about how 'ing I feel like I'm a ticking time bomb waiting to move the wrong way and BAM I'm paralyzed. My neck is still popping and cracking and it scares me to death. They don't know if my condition is going to get worse or not, so they're sending me to neurologist to get more of an opinion.
I know the opinions I seek are form non-professionals. But I want to know anyone who has had experience with this kind of condition with cervical spine or has seen someone else go through it. I'm only 24, and they said I'll probably be on a watch and wait type of thing to see how it progresses. I just don't want to be working, driving or doing anything if I know there's a chance it could make it worse. I guess I'm just really worried.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
