5 weeks ago I was diagnosed with a pretty bad C-6 herniation. At my peak of uncomfortability, I was experiencing pain 24/7, numbness throughout my right arm and hand, and severe weakness in my right arm as well. About a week ago things turned around due to meds and physical therapy. I take NSAIDs during the day and a muscle relaxer at night to help me sleep. Currently I'm almost pain free, except for waking up in the morning and usually before I go to bed. The numbness has greatly improved to only affecting my middle and ring finger, and the weakness has improved greatly but not that close to being normal. The question I have is should I be confident that this recovery will continue and at some point I will be back to normal? Or is it possible that my recovery just stops and I will have to take other measures? Any help is appreciated.
