Had an MRI over a year ago which showed disc herniation at C6-C7, had the worst pain going in to my left shoulder in to my middle finger, had some steroid injections which finally helped about 60%.
Just went for another MRI (no contrast) and...it shows nothing wrong at C6-C7, I'm pleased but why am I still having pain and awful burning?
My left middle finger still feels stiff/painful and I still cannot sleep on my left shoulder as it hurts too much.
An EMG last year said significant changes at C6, if it said that wouldn't something have still been seen on the MRI?
It also showed a pinched nerve in my left elbow so I have pain in my left pinky finger.
I am so frustrated, just want this to all be gone.
Any kind of therapy, PT, massage etc flairs everything up and I'm hurting more for days, I can't exercise, nothing.
Not that it's important but this is all from a bad car accident and now my attorney is saying well an MRI now shows nothing so you have no case anymore, that's upsetting too. I've been through such agony and still have problems.
Anyone still having problems even if a new MRI now shows a disc has healed??
Thank you for any help.
