Hi.  My husband's discs are not herniated, but he does have bulging discs in his cervical spine.  He constantly has migraine headaches.  Have you seen a chiropractor?  They may be able to help alleviate some of the symptoms.  I wish I could be of more help.

Thanks.

I have been to a chiropractor in the past, currently I cannot afford it.

I have heard about Cervical Spine issues and Sleep Apnea in the past put cannot pinpoint any information specifically for the C5-6.  Then I just thought about migraines also maybe.

Has your husband had any relief?  I loved my chiro and hopefully in the next year I can revisit.  I was going to have surgery but elected to try the Chiro......I have not had the new chiro treatment that is like traction with that machine.......does he get that?

I'm not sure about herniations of the cervical spine in conjunction with Sleep Apnea.  I work in a clinic and I can ask one of the doctors here about that though, and I will get back to you.

We have an awesome chiropractor as well.  Her name is Dr. Deborah Heim and she practices in Shoreview, MN.  My husband has gotten relief with her, but as you may already know, sometimes manipulating the spine can cause more inflammation for a bit.  My husband does get horrible migraines from the bulging discs and when he goes to Deb, he usually feels better, especially if he ices his neck afterwards.  Of course, the pain really never goes away completely, but he feels a lot better.

Like I said before, I will get back to you about the connection between cervical spine herniations and sleep apnea, okay?  :)  Ttyl!
