Hello, I have recently been diagnosed with a massive protrusion of the c6-c7 discs. I have been experiencing dabilitating pain since around November. Numbness of hands severe shoulder, neck, pain, also horrible muscle spasms. I cannot get any relief even while taking Prednisone, muscle relaxants, narcotic pain meds etc... I've been to chiropractors, traction, injections, nothing seems to work. Just wondering if it is time to break down, and opt for surger? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
