Cervical issues here with bulges, herniation, stenosis and DJD. Primary issues are between C5 and C7. I'm 41.
Symptoms started 12/2007. Had successful PT therapy for some numbness and tingling in my right arm. It lasted about 2 months before I slipped on a step (I'm such a klutz) and now I'm into acute pain territory. At first we thought it was just a torn shoulder muscle, but pain is getting worse despite PT; entrapment is suspected. Finally got some Rx meds last week so I can get some sleep (hooray!!), and I'm preparing for the possibility of epidural cortisone treatment. Going for a pain mgmt consult later in the week.
I'm really glad I found this site and forum, I have already found a lot of helpful information. Thanks for your support in advance!
