On 13 Mar'15 I felt severe pain in my left arm and numbness in my thumb and index finger.
Met a neurologist and was advised MRI. The MRI showed a large C6-7 bulge.
The doctor gave me a dose of medrol 16 x 2 with Pregabid NT. After 2 weeks the pain went away and also the numbness in my thumb. I had also started PT with the meds. The doctor then tapered down the medrol dose to 8 mg x 2/day then to 4 mg x 2/day to nil. Continued with a dose of Pregabid NT with Ultracet.
Now after 4 weeks, I still have numbness in my index finger. I also get lot of sensations and vibrations in my left hand. Doctor says this could take up to 3 months.
Has anyone faced a similar situation. Please share..
