I'm hoping that someone can help me with this. I injured my neck back in December and since then I've had an x-ray and an MRI that shows that I have a herniated disc in my cervical spine.i've gone through physical therapy which didn't help and I'm currently scheduled for an EMG. since the injury I've had continued weakness and numbness in both of my arms and hands.
Today I had an appointment with my primary doctor who asked me to do a simple range of head movements to check my range of motion. About a half an hour afterwards I was almost completely unable to move my neck and I'm still in excruciating pain. Minikes stiff painful and I'm hunched over like I was right after I injured it. I asked my primary doctor what I should do and he said to call the orthopedic doctor. I called the orthopedic doctor who was closed and they said they didn't take messages of that nature. Is this something that needs to go to the emergency room or should I just wait it out? I don't want to make a mountain out of a mole hill but it's freaking me out that I can't move again.
