c6 and c7 herniated

Hi
I herniated c6 and c7 in October 2011. The pain was incerdible for three weeks with pain running down my arm. Things have settled down, but I now have neck pain and constatnt headaches. MRI showed the c6 abd c7 herniation, and I hve been in PT since. Has anyone had pain like this? the numbness seems to now in my other arm. I will being the surgeon this month but I am not sure what may be going on.
Thanks

I'm sorry you're going through all of that. I have experienced the burning pain you're talking about. I went through it for two months with no improvements. I had ..or have ..a pinched nerve in my neck.I had searing burning pain, deep aching, muscles spasms, tingling, muscle weakness and numbness. It was excruciating. Finally the pain started easing up. That was about 3 or 4 weeks ago. It's starting to return now. It's definitely not fun. Good luck at your appointment with your surgeon.

I did

I had pain like that for 4 months before it started to subside. My summer was spent in a leg cast because I broke my ankle in June and using a heating pad to stop the excruciating pain from 2 herniated discs from a car accident in May. I'm having a ACDF on the 11th because my spinal cord is severely compressed to 5 mm at c5-6.

I totally sympathize with you. Good luck at the surgeons!
