Hi, I was diagnosed with mild degenerative disc disease a couple of months ago. My doctor wasn't too concerned, which is good, I guess, however I am in constant pain with pressure in my neck and back of head. I get headaches on occasion and do have an appointment with an orthopedic doctor next week. My neck just really hurts all the time, When I rotate it, I feel the muscles pulling and its making cracking noises. My question is this......even though the DDD is mild, can it produce such excessive symptoms? Thank you.
