[QUOTE=out2lunch]Hi Tina, I also have bulging discs, bone spurs and DDD in my neck!! Which also gives me the numb/tingly fingers! This has been going on for 7yrs now, since a car accident, and I worry about permanent nerve damage but my drs don't seem concerned at all!
I also have this same problem in the lumbar area, which gives the numb feet!!
Do you have the sensation that your hand is swelling too?? That one concerns me too!! I'd like to know why things concern us, but not the drs?? Wishing you luck, and hope it's not a pinched nerve in your case, take care!!
Hi out2lunch, I did have a pinched nerve when I was 1st diagnosed after my MRI but I thought that was what was causing the pain in my legs, as these have virtually gone now, I thought maybe the pinched nerve had gone too. But maybe not. Anyway I was just concerned as it was a new sympton and was being quite persistent . I can't get an appointment until thursday, but it has not been as bad today so hopefully it will be gone by then. I did'nt have the swelling feeling fortunately. Thanx for ur reply Tina xxx
Ps. I can't remember, have you opted out of surgery also up to now, out2lunch?
I can remember you are one of the people that used to help me out a lot with advice on here
