Long night as I've been up since 1:00 AM this morning because of the pain in my shoulder and arm from my cervical issues. I have discogenic disease spondylosis and diffuse posterior bulges from C2-3 through C7-T1 that seems to get worse with every moment. My PMP referred me to a neurosurgeon's (NS) because my neck "...is in bad shape..." is November 12! Yes, I have to wait over 2 months to be seen by my NS to decide if I need surgery. My worse point in my neck is at C6-7 AND I have serious issues in the thoracic and lumbar regions too including 2 fusions of my L5/S1 s the first fusion in December 2005 failed and I had to have it redone in May 2012.
In addition to my "normal" pain in my mid and lower back, the pain in my shoulder that generates from my neck has become so much worse over the last month or so that I am not getting the sleep I did before the neck problems came to a headl I already take Exalgo, Nucynta, baclofen, and cymbalta for the pain (plus tylenol and motrin) but wondering if anyone has a magic elexior that will work?
Sorry for any typos but my pain meds are finally kicking in.
Thanks for your feedback, Jerome
