It has been awhile since I posted last Post was June 6 , 2011.
Here is what has been happening :
Took a few weeks off work July. Still in pain but I thought i could do it. Could only work few hours a day. Lifting and carrying my labtop and such was an issue.
By Oct things were not getting better . I received copy of MRI. Shows large C5/6 abutting ventral aspect of cord. Bulging discs C4/5.
Was still at same family doctor. After much requesting and bringing my husband to my appointments he finally referred me to Neuro Surgeon.
Trid various medications.
Dec 2011. Switched to a new Family Physician. He is very helpful.
end of January, was in a vehicle accident, i was passenger in a SUV. We were hit from behind by a truck on my side of vehicle.
Met with Neuro Surgeon, he is not prepared to offer any surgical options for my neck. There is narrowing and disc is up against cord.
I am now checking booking a Stand up MRI. I understand this will show clearer indications if the discs are positional.
I am ao frustrated. I have pain to bend head back words, sideways and have pins and needles feelings .
Looking for any information and suggestions.
