I've been suffering from chronic pain for the last 3 years now,the doctor and specialists i have attended have diagnosed a C5,C6 bulged discs,i can trace this back to over 3 years ago when i was on holiday in eastern europe and had a massage from one of the local therapists,this was not sore at the time but later the same evening i awoke with terrible pain in my right shoulder.
Over the last 12 months this pain has carried from this shoulder right down into my right forearm,my right thumb tip since it happened has always had a pins and needles feel about it,i have also experienced a burning sensation on my right forearm.
The main source of pain though is in my shoulder,i have had an MRI scan and it confirmed a bulged disc in the C5 C6 areas.
Surgery could correct this however i have been informed that it could also make this worse.
If anyone can advise on any other courses of treatment or anyone who has indeed had a surgical procedure of this kind i would be gratefull to hear from you, I am a 51 year old male from Scotland
