Long story short. Have been having headaches behind my left ear for over a month and went to PCP. Had MRI on brain, normal. Had MRI on c-spine, 2 disc protrusions and 1 disc bulge. Referred to PM doctor and neurosurgeon as well as PT. Been going to PT for three weeks @ 3x/week. Can't get into PM doctor for 3 months and PCP doesn't want to manage pain meds (has only given me enough Hydrocodone 7.5/500mg to last until next Monday). Went to neurosurgeon and was told I don't need surgery (good thing). Referred to physiatrist.
What can I expect? Do they manage pain meds?
