I am new
I am a 33 year old female and as long as I can remember, I have had tingling in my hands and arm. I was told it was everything from carpal tunnel to arthritis. So I just lived with it, until about 6 months ago. I woke up and could not move my neck. The pain went down my arm and it was so bad I could not brush my teeth, take a shower, nothing, I was in such horrible pain that my husband took me to the hospital. I was put on meds and it went a away but happened again a few months later and has never fully gone away. My Dr finally was sent to get an MRI and it turns out that I have a herniated disk C5-C6 and a bulging one C6-C7. I have gone to several Dr’s and they all recommend the prestige disk. I am going to have the disc replacement done in February and I am terrified. Has anyone had the surgery?
