Hi, I'm a 48 year old woman with a neck herniation. I have had 2 back surgeries and have 3 more buldging discs. I am in the process of getting disability and am waiting for the hearing. I have no insurance and the 2 dr.'s that I have gone to have both said I need neck surgery as soon as possible. I can't turn my neck to the left and can only turn it to the right alittle. My left arm tingles and feels real achey all of the time. It goes down to my middle finger and my ring finger and part of my thumb. I have a place on my neck/shoulder area that to the touch hurts like the nerve is exposed. Also when I put any pressure on that spot or around there it makes me feel dizzy and nausiated. I also get headaches from this. Is there any information or help that you can give me? I am always in so much pain its making me feel real depressed. Thank you for your time.
I know this is an old post, but still, since i have joined this forum, i would like to answer it.
If finances are a problem and there are multiple level disc problem, then -
Yoga / Physiotherapy is the only way out with medicines (which included Steriods also).
So please let me know as what is your present condition, so that i can guide you.
