I wish I was talking about my hard drive, but I am referring to disks in back. And not sure this is the right forum as I am new to understanding parts of the spine.
I had an xray recently and was told there is no space between vertebrae in three places. The higher one has cause some headaches, lower one causes leg pain, but the worst is the middle one between the shoulders. It is causing some severe pain, especially at work.
The pain is in my right shoulder, and down the front. This, with shooting pains down my arm, up my neck, and down the front of my chest.
I have been seeing a Chiropractor who says he can help, which it does to a point, but when I get to work and start doing heaving lifting all night, it gets to the point of dropping the parts I am working on. No one at work really understands the amount of pain I am dealing with, and all I get is a "hang in there". Our health guru in the office says to take ibuprofen and see a massage therapist.
Will add, the disks are there, just flat or something, as I have never understood what he meant, even after asking him, as he is always in a hurry to see other patients.
So is there any help for this, other than seeing a Chiropractor? If he can't get the pain to stop, than do I need surgery?
I am clueless.
