Re: I Finally got an appointment with a neurosurgeon

For those who haven't read my story here it is
Ok to start off i'm under workmans comp. this is my MRI results.Findings-@ C3-4 there is a diffuse somewhat irregular bulging disk that is eccentric to the left. the disk extends back and impinges upon the anterior aspect of the cord. AP diameter is 8 mm at this level. C4-5 there is a diffuse bulging disk symmetrical, with AP diameter of the cord 8 mm.@ C5-6 there is diffuse bulging disk that is eccentric to the right. there is bilateral nerve root foraminal narrowing, but worse on right than on left. the AP diameter of the canal is 9mm.

there is diffusely bulging disks @ L3-4 and small central disk hernation at L2-3.

My problem is my primary doctor wants me to see a Neurosurgen. workman comp is dragging their feet. I have very severe pain in both arms with pins and needles all the time and weakness in mt arms. my legs I have sharp burning pain down my legs more on the left. and part of my right leg. How bad does this sound and any ideas on how to get workman comp to take care of my problem. it is almost 2 months and still just taking pills. Thanks in advance
