Bone Spur

I am about at my wits end. 10 years ago I was in a rear end car wreck and was treated for whiplash and bulging disc C6. Since then I have had shoulder pain but in the last year it has gotten very bad along with pain through the top of my shoulder and down into my elbow.
One physician said it was a bone spur at C6 chronic pain.
Went to a neurosurgeon, MRI indicated surgery not needed but there is a bone spur. A month ago something popped in my neck, around C6 and pain just shot out from this area down my shoulders. Pinky fingers go numb too.
Unfortunately blood tests came back and now have to go to a rhuemtoid doc.
Has anyone had this experience with bone spurs in the neck?
The pain is so bad, especially driving and regular activity.
I'm thinking that I'm crazy and no relief is in sight...


  • I have problems with cervical but I have bone spurs thoracic and lumber. I hope the rheumatoid Dr. can help. Have you done physio or found a pain management Dr.? Take care and keep us posted. Charry
