I am new to this forum. I see a lot of you have similar problems to mine. I have battled neck and back pain for several years. I have gone to every specialist there is. After going to pain management for over a year and not getting better I finally convinced my GP to order an Emg and MRI. They both showed compression of the 2cervical nerves, 4 bulging discs, and cervical stenosis. Went to see two neurosurgeons and both said surgery would help. Then had a myelogram. The pain was excruciating! After two days of the pain not going away I went to the ER. They did another MRI and said the myelogram and MRI did look that bad and shouldn't require surgery. How can that be? I still have the pain but I was miraculously healed? Has this ever happened to anyone? I finally had a reason for all of this pain and now it's gone and back to arthritis and fibromyalgia. I don't get it. I am so sad I don't know what to do.
