I have seen 2 neurosurgeons in the past 3 months. I have had x-rays that showed cervical degeneration, an MRI that showed bone spurring and a bulging disc with a mass effect pressing of the exiting nerve roots, and a CT myelogram that showed signficiant stenosis of 70%. After the CT myelogram I went back to my neurosurgeon and he said that he wanted to let the bone spurs to grow more because of my age. I was very frustrated by this because I have been dealing with this for a year now. He then wanted me to have a nerve conduction study because he though that I might have carpal tunnel syndrome or an ulnar nerve problem. That test came back normal. I have severe neck pain and it radiates to the left shoulder and left collar bone. I have also had 2 trigger point injections in the bicipital groove and on the scapular bone with no relief. Can someone please help me understand what I am supposed to do now????
