I hope everyone is feeling a bit better today, and optimistic
for the future.
I woke up one morning with a spasm in my throat, and had difficulty
swallowing. Although I've had some neck pain and stiffness over the years,
these symptoms seem to have worsened.
I currently have "Pins and Needs" in the arms, a little in the legs.
Slight difficulty swallowing, and sometimes my right hand falls asleep.
I have two bulging disks, and a slight herniation. My doctor says my
condition is Mild to Moderate. I have a Osteophyte at C5-C6 which
has grown to the point that it slightly impinges on the esophagus. I feel
it when I swallow. My other symptoms mentioned Pins and needles, occured at the
exact same time as the osteophyte/esophagus
problem materialized. I am very concerned and do not know how to go about
researching the right doctor, right treatments, and right hospital if I'm to prepare
for ultimate surgery. Right now my current physician says surgery is not indicated.
Hope to hear back and thankyou.
