I have a compressed degenerating disc between c5/c6: this causes radiculopathy & neuropathy.
I'm healing slowly with conservative treatment.
Since my initial flare up last March, I've had strep--in mid-May--and an upper-respiratory-tract infection--this week.
Those infections make the neuropathy unbearable.
Does anybody else experience that, too?
Why do normal infections worsen the neuropathy?
