: HI LInda and welcome aboard.I am sorry to hear you have had so much trouble.Besides the mri's have they done more extensive testing?Mylogram,Discogram in the c5/6 area?IF it is a bone spur,I would think they would be making the suggestion of getting it removed.It most definately sounds like it is pinching nerves and after this long of time it no doubt has made permanent nerve damage.This is way too much for doctors to say they are not sure.Keep searching until you find a doctor who wants to remedy these problems.What kind of Meds are you on.Have you heard of Celebrex or Neurontin?No I am not on these but many people in here are and they can and help you out even further.I am sure you will get many responses.This is usually a great place.We have just been having some problems lately so please excuse and forgive us.We wish you all the best.Take care and God bless.
My goodness it took me a whole year to find the answer for my symptoms. Specialist after specialist, and finally someone ordered and MRI and bingo. Compression at c5 and 6 with a bone spur. Also the my spinal cord is being compressed
I go in 12/4 for surgery removal of one disc the spur, the surgeon will place a graft and a titanium plate with screws. I have numbness and tingling in the left arm severe headaches, burning sensation in my neck. The slightest tap on my head and I see stars
