Hello, I'm new here, so here goes... couple of weeks ago I woke in the morning with both of my hands asleep. It progressed from pins and needles to burning/crushing pain from both elbows to my fingertips. I went to see my chiropractor, he did an adjustment and told me to come back the next Monday. This past Monday I was no better so I had an adjustment and x rays. Doctor says I have no disc at all between the c5 and c6, probably from an accident 20 or more years ago. I am bone on bone and the bone is trying to grow together not in a good way. Tomorrow I'm taking my x rays to see the GP, but I'm not sure what or where to go from there? I'm having to sleep upright in the corner of our couch because lying down makes both my arms scream, it's very difficult to say the least.
Oh, forgot this part, I'm a 53 year old woman that had an active lifestyle to this point, lots of working out with 3 or 4 hours of cardio per week and free weights. Be so happy if and when I get this behind me and go back to my normal life.
Thanks for letting me share.
