My name is Doug. I recently visted the doctor for constant neck pain pain that constantly radiated down to my shoulder causing weakness in the arm when extending it. It was determined that I have a severe right neutral foraminal compromise at C4-5 level due to bony hypertrophy. In other words, the herniated disc is holding the nerve hostage. Not good.
So it appears that after a couple of MRIs and rule out any tears in the rotator cup area. The next step is
ACDF C4-C5 surgery.
Not looking forward to it.
