I am new to the forum and have found all the posts very informative and helpful. I have been having significant neck/arm pain for a month now and have every symptom of a herniated disk. I have pain in my neck and shoulder, tingling and achiness in my arm down to my fingers, severe migraine like headaches, ringing in my ears. It has effected every aspect of my life. I can't do my job, take care of my kids, my house is a mess, and quite frankly I am starting to get very depressed about it. So far I have been to care now, consulted my family doctor (who told me to go to the ER due to my level of pain) and have been to a pain doctor who finally ordered an MRI. I don't know if I am not getting my point across about how much pain I am in but I feel like none of the doctors I've seen have taken me seriously. I think they may suspect I am trying to get pain killers because the ER doctor straight up told me "this is not an emergency" even though I was in tears because of how bad I was hurting. Anyways, because of this I am terrified that my MRI is going to come back showing nothing is wrong. I get my results on Tuesday and am praying they have a diagnosis and can start treating me because I can't live like this. So my question is, first of all am I crazy? (That one may be rhetorical) has anyone had a "normal" MRI but had significant pain such as mine? And what would you recommend I do if my MRI doesn't show any issues?
