HELLO everyone I'm dealing with several issues and looking for people that may have suffered from the same symptoms ..First off i started getting ear pains when working out they gradually got worse one night i woke up in terrible neck shoulder blade area pain,i received a deep tissue massage the next day thinking i had a bad knot,it made things a lot worse ,i ended up with a big muscle spasm on my back in more pain then when i started i received anti inflame meds..A few weeks later i noticed tremendous muscle weakness numbness in index and thumb pain throughout right arm and chest two weeks after that my triceps and right pec atrophied tremendously also. I received an MRI it showed a small herniation in c6 c7 even and EMG showed nerve damage i truly feel like the massage could have done great damage but all the doctors tell me I'm nuts..now i started PT a few weeks later i felt like i was getting a little stronger numbness subsided..i was put on a traction machine for 10 min at 30 pounds i didn't feel any pain right after i also received electrical stim (which i didn't feel on the right side of my neck)..the next day i started to feel a burning in my LEFT button and hip.couple days later i have i horrible pain in the middle region of my LEFT SIDE of my back,I'm now having my LEFT elbow receive pain and now my LEFT hand index and ring finger get pins and needles fall asleep,I've also noticed the left side of my chin feel a little numb and now today I've woken up with my LEFT shin in pain i feel like I've been broken and there is no help I've seen two neurologist a neurosurgeon and they do there strength test which i pass but i am breaking down and I'm not getting answers i now have a second MRI scheduled to see if theres new developments I'm just noticing pain in so many different areas of the spine i don't know if the traction threw my whole spine out of whack or if my nerves are all letting go every time i tell the docs i think its serious they kind of shrug it off i almost feel like I'm being looked at as a hyper con but this is really happening does anybody have any insight???thank you
