I have been in chronic pain for 7 months now due to herniated disc in C5-C6. I have been seeing a neurologist and doesn't beleive I need surgery, I have tried everything from p/t to accupuncture, symptoms get worse. He has referred me to an ortho surgeon. My question is at what point will a doctor say surgeon is only thing left. I feel like I am getting pushed around and treated like its all in my head.
