I have had 2 seperate cervical fusions,had a spinal cord compression and diagnosed with cervical myelopathy and radiculapthy.My left arm has never recovered from the pain and weakness and now I have severe pain in both arms. I was on light duty for 5 months and put on full duty thereafter. My job requires me to be able to lift from 5 to 65 pounds on occasion.Thankfully I have wonderful coworkers who look out for me and will do most lifting for me. Recently I have been required to lift heavy things. It has made my hardly bearable condition unbearable!! My arms hurt and burn and I am very uncoordinated with the use of my arms. They are weak! Why would a NS tell me its okay to do this heavy lifting. When I talked to my Physiatrist about this she felt that I gave it my best shot and I should consider disability. I want to work but do not want to make my situation worse.Am I crazy thinking heavy lifting can cause further damage? Thoughts anyone?
