Hi, I have posted here before. 34 year old retired cop. ACDF C6-7, ACDF C7-T1 2/09 Anterior/Posterior L4-L5 L5-S1 10/07. I recently had Cervical MRI and Thoracic MRI. Results showed Herniation C4-5 and T8-9 and T-10. I am having SEVERE burning pain in my lower neck, and it ##@@##@ hurts to touch my lower neck near by shoulder blades. IF I breathe in hard it hurts. It also hurts to use the restroom which my Doc said is near Myopathy and is caused by my Thoracic Herniations.
Does anyone have an idea what is causing this SEVERE burning in my lower neck in my upper back. If I touch my spine near my shoulders I want to die. My Dr ordered two epidurals and I am waiting for them, but I do not think its gonna work. He said I would need surgery for sure on both neck and thoracic but not sure which first. I think its my neck that needs the most work first.
Anyway if anyone has similar pains or knows what is going on please let me know.
