Based on my symptoms, I think I have a disc fragment that is irritating the spinal cord.
BUT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON THE MRI.
Does ANYONE have a suggestion on how I can get an image of a small fragment so I could get it removed and have a life again?? Have you had surgery just for removal of a fragment??
I have neck and upper back pain that gets worse with movement. I'm OK if I lie flat on my back with my neck straight. Turning my head to the side aggravates the pain. It's clearly coming from the neck and it's clearly mechanical. I also have some numbness in the hands and left thigh.
