Hi there, I am 47 and have recently been told by a chiropractor that I have some disc degeneration between c3-c6. Apparently it is 2mm thick on one side and I have bone spurs on the other. To add to the mix apparently my neck has a reverse C curve. This all sounds very scary to me. Is 2mm thickness as fragile as it sounds or is it another few years of degeneration? should I be babying myself or going on as usual.
I know I should have asked these questions when I was told what was wrong but I was so shocked at the diagnosis that my mind went blank. Now I don't see him again until april 3rd. Meanwhile I am in pain in my left shoulder with pins and needles travelling down my left arm. The pain is 24/7 and varies between a mild ache and then by evening is almost unbearable. I just cannot get comfortable and no pain meds seem to be helping. I have tried heat and ice and really get no relief.
Does anyone have any experience with my issues, advice to give, miracle cures to offer lol?
