I'm not sure what to think about what the future holds for my neck which has badly degenerative disks & sponylosis c3 & c4 is on its way also got osyphites growing out of the disk touching the c4 & another large disk prolapse at c6/c7 which is exiting the c7 nerve root & spinal canal.
Iv had two facet joint injections on the c6/c7 but all that did was minimally help the shoulder pain.
So on my follow up appointment I mentioned getting g more injections at the site of the badly degenerative disks but I was told that it is too risky even in the joint it could make the vertical artery go in to spam.
Could there be any other type of injection that's safer c3/ c4 pain is starting to wake me up in the night dull heavy ache radiating pain I'm only 33 years old !!!
The prolapsed disk at c6/c7 is totally different if I do any type of pulling pushing lifting or carrying it hurts so much I get panicky I hate living like this its affecting every aspect of my life.
Can the disk that's prolapsed shrink back ??
I just feel so tired and lethargic a lot of the time it's depressing I try to stay positive but I really am struggling I try to take each day as it comes but all the Dr's ever say is its wear and tear but surly someone my age don't normally get this much wear and tear.
The headaches are a problem I get them for weeks on end along with sore eyes
Iam waiting to see a neurologist & have had an appointment with pain clinic specailst who won't start my program until I see the neurologist.
I'm sorry for going on & on I just feel isolated I feel that my family get fed up of hearing all my issue with my health
Thankyou all for listening xx
