ricochette of pain from sitting down

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have just had a joint conconsultation with 2 spinal consultants as the first one I saw was not 100% on what was happening. I am experiencing pain all down my left hand side. The second consultant said that the pain I am getting in my leg was not coming from my neck, but from my hip.I know for a fact that it is coming from my neck. I have trouble with discs from c3 right down to c7, due to an unusual curve in my neck. They are all bulging discs, but one of them has worn aw. So now, every time I sit down i get a ricochet up my back, and the pain is really bad. I think I have been taking my medication for too long, that it is not having much of an affect. I am now waiting to go for a CT scan and I hope I don't have to wait too long

      Hi Ashton. My left arm is very sore. It feels like the muscle at the top front of my arm is being torn. I also have really bad shooting pains all the way down my left leg. If I try to walk properlly, the pain is really bad. I have been back to my gp, and all they have done is upped my amitriptyline and said they cannot do anything more.

      That's what is going to happenwwith me. I have a CT scan coming up, then the next move is surgery. I have been told by the surgeon that the surgery is going to be rather complex, as the are going to try and sort out the curve, it is a rather big curve that will require having a rod put in. I am scared to death of having the surgery though.
