left shoulder weakness

I've had neck problems for many years. The last year or so, I have noticed tingling and my left shoulder muscle losing tone. I'm already been MRI'd many years ago and have bulging 6c and c7. It appears I have entgered a new phase of my condition where there is big time impingement of my nerve, hence the signs of paralysis.

I have an appointment next week to see a doctor. I was wondering if the technology has advanced beyond fusing my spine. Is there any such thing as an artificial disk they can implant?

I like the idea of a new cushion verses losing mobility in my neck as the disks on either side of the fusing gets twice the usage and twice the stress.


  • I will get notifications as people answer, thanks.
  • First of all, welcome to Spine-Health :H . Great website. Lots of nice people. You can do a search in the search box regarding questions about most any spine topic. Just start looking around. That's what I did. Of course, this question and comment board is wonderful too. Get to meet friends and hear what they have been or are going through. May even gets ideas from their stories that might help YOU.
