I have had 3 back surgeries in my lower back and am now having pain and burning in upper back-neck area. Slowly has progressed into numbness in both hands and up right arm when I lay on either side at night. And have numbness in little finger and ring finger on right hand all the time. So afraid to go to dr. because of testing starting all over again. So frustrated but so tired of dealing with the pain and worry of it. So afraid of surgery AGAIN and the bad experiences I have had in the after care at hospitals that I just keep putting it off to call the dr.I talk to my family about it and they look at me like I am wanting attention or something. Pain is so debilitating to people and because its invisible no one seems to care.


  • I feel for you and understand completely. It is so debilitating and takes over one's life. So sorry you are experiencing this. It is so hard to find the right doctor. Keep us posted.
