Hi i am new here so please excuse me as i am still getting my head around this and did not understand a lot of the doctors jargon.
After experiencing pain in right arm which was like a buzzing and aching sensation and getting pain in my neck that was causing me lack of sleep, i went to the doctor and he said he thought i had a slipped disc in my neck after my car accident where a car went into me.
He sent me for a mri and to see a specialist who then said i had a disc pressing on my spin in my neck. I have to admit, i was shocked and freaked out a little.
I am now waiting to see a spinal surgeon and would like more information and would like to know if the following symptons are related to the disc in my neck.
A couple of weeks ago i had a lot of pain in my right leg, and more recently i am getting like a ache and a tingly feeling in my lower right leg. Never my left leg.
Also a few weeks ago for two weeks i had a lot of back pain where my lower back was in a great deal of pain. I struggled to get out of a chair and could not sleep properly for nearly two weeks. This pain has now gone but comes and goes.
When i drive for long period of times i start to get a pain in my lower back and my right leg starts to hurt more.
I went to the gym to try and get fit but when i went on the weights which was a machine weight, as soon as i did push up weights, my top of my back towards my neck was hurting and i could feel something pulling.
Can anyone please let me know if this is related to my disc problem and also why it does not affect my left side.
Any help and advice and help on understanding more about the disc problem i have would be great.
