I have been diagnosed with three herniated disc in my neck. All three also have bone spurs. I am 55 and have had neck soreness off and on for a number of years. I also have servere shoulder aches. At the end of May I had an appointment with a neurosurgeon to discuss two herniated disc in my lower back. It had taken me two months to get the appointment even with the help of my orthopedic doctor. The day I went for the appointment my neck was stiff and painful. He ordered MRIs of all three regions-neck, middle and lower back. When he received the results, he called to tell me to go to PT immediately. I have been going for three weeks. The numbness in my fingers is still there, my neck hurts to turn it in either direction but the worst symptom is the tingling in the back of my head. I am consistently wanting to scratch my head. Has anyone else had this symptom? I go back to the neurosurgeon on the 1st for a sit down meeting to discuss the findings. I have not ganed much from the PT because they said my muscles in the shoulders and arm were so tense they were afraid to do more than the ultrasound and TEN.
