My name is Shahad and I'm 19 years old medical student
I've been suffering from neckpain since I was 15 but the pain stopped for 2 years and now it returned accompined with lower back ache and leg pain
The backache and leg pain became worse than the neck. I've reached a level where waking up for school was torturing
The pain is worse in early morning but continues throughout the day. I decided to go to a doc and had a cervical MRI and was found to have DDD
I'm suspecting a lumbar DDD as well but still didn't do a test to confirm it
I use muscle relaxants and NSAIDS to relive the pain but now it doesn't work anymore
My question is does anyone know a way to relieve the pain or a cure? And would it affect my future to become a surgeon ?
