I am rather to the whole back problem/neck pain. To be honest I am not having pain in my neck. From my shoulder blades to my bottom there is pain in varying level on both sides of the back. At first I had a few fingers go numb on my left hand and from the elbow to the hand (entire area) go numb. I have had an MRI done on the neck. The findings are: "C5-6 central Disc Protrusion with thecal sac impingement".
I have looked up varying parts and have not been able to really say I know what this means. I do have a basic understanding that a disk is pushing in on an outer area of the spine. I will be seeing a neurosurgeon in a few weeks as that is as soon as I am able to get in. My MD is not real sure what to do and my Chiroprator is the one that ordered the MRI and has refered me to the Neuro. Any advice/help suggestions. I would have thought that an MRI would have been complete on another area of my back where there is pain and in the lower right hand side there is a rib off set from the spine.
This has made life a big mess for me, my wife and my three kids that are used to me picking them up and playing with them. I am now a grumpy person that is very short and I am very saddened with how it is affecting my family.
Looking for help,
Curent MEDS: Hydroco/APAP 7.5-500, Chlorzoxazon 500 MG
Which does not do a whole lot to put me at ease for very long...
