I was in a car crash 2 years ago and had a pinched nerve. I had minimal treatment and didn't have too many issues from it. A couple months ago I started losing strength in my right arm. Then severe pain from my neck to my right shoulder for a few weeks. The pain subsided but my arm is still week. A few days ago I started having pins and needles feeling in my right arm. Now I am having what appears to be itching throughout my body. After an MRI I was diagnosed with 2 herniated disks. C5-C6 and C6-C7. The Dr. is ordering a nerve test and will determine if I need epideral shots and PT or surgery where a piece of bone is taken from my hip and fused to the disk. Everything I am reading online says that surgery is usually successful and the preferred treatment. Every other treatment is just temporary relief. I can't find much info on the risks or complications afterward. I am only 38 and feel too young to be having neck surgery. I'd like to hear testimonials on what treatment options you explored and the results. Thank You for your time.
