on April 30th I was away in Botswana and I fell, on to outstretched arms.
I had instant pain in my neck and then got pins and needles. I saw a doctor a week or so later in south africa who told me to get urgent help when I got home (after getting xrays).
Took xrays to doctor who said I could see urgent neurosurgen appt or MRI - I hate appts so opted for MRI.
I have numb patches down my arm, the pins and needles has spread to my chest, the pain in my shoulder, neck and arm is excrutiating.
It took 3 weeks for results to get back and has shown many problems but mainly a disc badly damaged enough to warrant urgent neurosurgery appointment for surgery asap
My doctor referred me.
The referal got returned saying I have to go to physio first.
The pins and needles is horrendous, the pain is unbearable and I sit banging my head on my desk as I don't know what to do.
I have had no nelp. Nothing
When i used the symptom checker and put my symptoms in from after an accident it sayts ring 999 - can you do that after so many weeks? I am desperate
Please can someone help.
