Bulging Discs in Neck Jaw & Teeth Pain

I have two bulging discs in my neck and two in my lower back from a horrible fall two days ago I heard a huge pop and now I am having jaw and tooth pain, a migraine, I have no movement in my neck, my spine is killing and I am having pain down my arms worse than before and down to my ankles. If I go to the hospital are they going to do anything for me?

Welcome to Spine-Health

It would be very helpful if you could provide us with more details. So many times we read about members who have different tests and they all come back negative. The more clues and information you provide, the better chances in finding out what is wrong,

Here are some questions that you should answer:

  • - When did this first start?
    - Was it the result of an accident or trauma?
    - What doctors have you seen? (Orthopedic, Neurosurgeon, Spine Specialist, etc)
    - What Conservative treatments have you had? Which ones?
    - What diagnostic tests have you had? And their results (MRI, CTScan, XRay, EMG, etc)
    - What medications are you currently using? (details, dosage, frequency, etc)
    - Has surgery been discussed as an option? (If so, what kind)
    - Is there any nerve pain/damage associated?
    - What is your doctor’s action plan for treating you?

Providing answers to questions like this will give the member community here a better understanding
of your situation and make it easier to respond.

Please take a look at our forum rules: Forum Rules

Please remember that no one at Spine-Health is a formally trained medical professional.
Everything that is posted here is based on personal experiences and perhaps additional research.
As such, no member is permitted to provide

  • - Analysis or interpretation of any diagnostic test (ie MRI, CTscan, Xray, etc)
    - Medical advice of any kind
    - Recommendations in terms of Medications, Treatments, Exercises, etc

What could be good for someone could spell disaster for another.
You should also consult your doctor to better understand your condition and the do’s and don’t’s.

It is very important that new members (or even seasoned members) provide others with details about their condition(s). It is virtually impossible to help another member when all the details we have are
I’ve had this for years, it hurts, I cant move my shoulder – what could this be, what treatment should I get?

Diagnosing spinal problems can be very difficult. In many ways its like a game of clue. Especially, when the diagnostic tests come back negative – no trouble found! Then its up to the patient and the doctor to start digging deeper. The doctor is like a detective. They need clues to help them move along. So, you as the patient need to provide the doctor with all sorts of clues. That is like it is here. Without having information about a condition, its impossible for anyone here to try to help.

    Hi Italy_girl -

    We have no way of predicting what the dr at the hospital will do. Only you can decide whether or not to seek emergency treatment.

    You say that you have bulging discs so it sounds like you have seen a doctor for imaging studies. What did he/she say? Do you have a plan of action for this problem?

    I'm sorry I don't have any advice for you. I hope you get this resolved soon.
    Scoliosis and other problems at every level.

    2013: C-5 to C-6 ADR
    2014: C-5 to C-6 fusion/revision of failed ADR
    2014: Total hip replacement, right

    Cancelled multi-level fusion - fear being more crippled and in more pain.

    i am wondering how it went?

    MRI shows C4-C7 severe steonosis. Pain in hand.
  • It's possible you may have TMJ? I have TMJ and bulging disc in my neck and it's all connect. My jaw problems are creating further issues with my neck and vise versa. Some advice - if you start physical therapy make just you let them know of any jaw problems. Some exercises for your neck involve pushing on your jaw and will cause problems. Because of my TMJ and jaw pain I have to do some modifications in therapy.. It's been a bit of a roadblock.
