I have recently been dignosed w/ a Herniated Disc at T2-T3. The pain has been ongoing for about 3mths. I had several different test's done before finally having an MRI on my thoracic spine. The Doctor told me Herniation's never happen at that level. The MRI showed that the Herniated Disc Displacement is Mild, but the pain has been awful. I Have pain in my shoulder blades, that wraps underneath my arms and around to my chest. I have pain when I press on the bone between my breast's. The pain will also radiate down my arms. I find it impossible to sit at a desk all day or in a car. I would like to know if the pain I am describing is typical, and if I can expect my pain to improve. I am doing PT and I am taking Anti-Inflam. I was also given a round of Steroids which has not helped. I have the Option of doing the Cortizone shot, but I am trying to make it a last option.
