This happened fairly recently. For the first two weeks I thought maybe I had pulled a muscle, but the pain never got any better. I had an MRI a few days ago which confirmed a ruptured disc. I didn't think to ask the doctor, and he didn't say, but it's either C6-C7, or C5-C6. I have pain in my left shoulder and elbow, and intermittent numbness below the elbow. My left arm is now noticably weaker than my right. If any of you have had any similar cervical disk problems, I know I could got a lot of good input from you; what questions to ask, what treatments were effective or ineffective and, especially, what results any of you have had from cervical discectomy or fusion.
