I'm a new member-first post. I just feel like I am fighting this battle with pain alone. I would like to know if anyone else has experienced anything similar to my experience. Here's my story.......I am a 50 year old female. I had a couple of serious wrecks while in my 20's. At the time, no long lasting effects from the wrecks. I started having problems with pain in my right shoulder about 10 years ago. Diagnosis was BURSITIS & I starting getting shots in my shoulder every month or so. At first it helped, but then the pain when to my wrist. I am a bookkeeper & type all day (I have not had good posture for years). To make a long story short, I now have neck pain that goes down my arm. My hand tingles, stings, is cold all the time & there is some numbness. I have tried physical therapy, narcotics, & a tens unit. My primary doctor referred me to a Neurologist, which sent me for a MRI, and a nerve conductor test. The Dr say both test are normal. However the MRI does show a bulging disc & disc space narrowing @ c5-c6, small central disc protrusion @ c2 - c3, as well as in c3 - c4. His conclusion was: mild degenerative changes at c5-c6. I cannot begin to tell you how painful this has become. I am taking the narcotic pain meds every four hours just to get through the day at work. I cannot continue to endure this pain & try to work. I have a follow up appt with my neurologist tomorrow. I really do not know what to expect at this point. My husband is so frustrated at the doctors & he insists on going with me to my appt tomorrow. Any insight & advice you can give me will be very appreciated. Will let you know what Dr says. Thanks for listening.
