HELP: 44yrs old, EXCRUCIATING Pain in right side of neck & pain travels all the way down arm.
Physical Therapy diagnosed me with herniated disc. No MRI done. Pain started 3 weeks ago, think from carrying a heavy bag down some stairs.
Never had this happen before. No prior injuries to the neck.
Taken every drug imaginable (miracle I haven't overdosed yet, but there's still time !!)... nothing touches the pain!!!
Tens unit, it helps about 3% of my pain.
Exercises help but wear off after a while, just started neck exercises therapy showed me.
Trying to relax, but work doesn't help. I type all day. Office job.
Any ideas on what else I can do to relieve the pain.
I feel like I want to die. Just like all of you probably feel everyday. I feel for every one of you!
I've had pain before too...carpal tunnel surgery in both hands, knee injuries...but this pain...this pain is worse.
I feel like there's no hope. I just want my life back.http://www.spine-health.com/forum/announcements/spine-health-announcements/blend
