Hello I have a question in hopes someone can give some advice. I was recently diagnosed with having (from a thoracic scan) my c2 and c3, 7t-t10 herniated to the left according to what the neurologist told me and have a appoitment wensday at a spine institute. My problem is that I have constant pain in my neck which I can never get comfortable, as well as my middle part of my back, when I stand for longer then 20 minutes it gets to the point where it hurts and has really hindered the way I used to work. I also notice some other bowel problems I am occuring and major left eye pain. but what startles me is when I sneeze I will get this pain which at times has me in tears going down my neck, down both shoulders and ending where my elbows are at, but more severe on the left side. I often fall down too out of the blue as well as getting numbinb sensations on my left foot and hands. I am getting this uneasy feeling I could end up needing surgery and wonder if others go through this and had similar problems and what happened during those times. being I never had this happen it does worry me.
