I've had alot of pain from my neck all the way down my spine for some time. One night I got a sharp pain in my arm like someone hit me. I got out of bed and became paralysed on one side. Luckily I fell against the wall instead of the floor. After about a minute, I was able to push myself up and I was able to function normally. Has anyone had that problem before? I had an MRI and was told I have multiple bulging discs. My doctor gave me some anti-inflamatory and muscle relaxant medication and gave me an appt with a physical therapist. From everything I read, you aren't suppose to take anti-inflamatory medication for a long period of time. But, I'm tired of hurting and want to coninue taking it as long as it helps. I'm not able to sleep on a pillow because it hurts my neck and when I lie flat it hurts. Anyway, I'm really concerned about the paralysis and worry it will happen again. My doctor doesn't seem to want to talk about that too much. I was just wondering if anyone else had a problem with temporary paralaysis? Thanks for listening.
