Bulgin with bonespurs also some mild to moderate closing

I had a 2nd Nerve test done to day.He said it looks fine he offered to do nerve block shots to diff areas that he says test as very very angry muscle.
Thats fine and dandy but what explains the shooting pain to left outer fingers (pinky and ring) down across lower palms both have pain. Also my rt hand gets considerably ice cold. In my neck for years I get horrible zaps in it that could drop me to my knees sometimes.
I can only descibe that it feels like a slingshot across the room and the peanut hit me in the same spot. It's embarassing. The Dr said get a permenant marker to zero in on my worst areas and he would do nerveblocks there. I m starting to question my sanity I know what I feel its horrible I can present the temp changes in both hands. Im just confused I guess. But wouldn't my DDD issues possibly cause this zap feeling? On another hand I am no longer able to sleep on either side because the burning pain kicks in. Im just starting to feel am I needing to see a Pysch . Everynight w/out fail when I lay down the scatica feels like icepicks dragging down my legs UGGHHHH so frustrated. I wonder if I m not agressive in the appt...Like do I say this is what hurts can you help me? ooh well Hope your weekend is blessed..

Re: Bulgin with bonespurs also some mild to moderate closing

I was looking through some of your older posts and it sounds to me like all your issues could very well be related to spine issues.

Have you had a thorough work-up from a fellowship-trained spine specialist recently? One that looked at your lumbar and cervical spine?

It is possible to have nerve compression without having a much show up on a EMG. Also EMG is considered a subjective test and is only as good as the technician administering it and the doctor interpreting the results.

Nerve blocks are a fairly good way to determine if pain is coming from a particular segment or location.

DDD can definitely cause all the symptoms you describe...that's why I asked about the spine specialist. A good diagnostician should be able to figure out what's going on!

Re: Bulgin with bonespurs also some mild to moderate closing

No I haven't I'll google that term. I'm down the road from Univ of Florida theres gotta be something there. Do I ask for a consult and tell them that it is lumbar, neck and also my recent MRI stated disc-bulg-protrusions from mid to lower thoracic spine. I don't want to sound like a crybaby but I don't want feel like I'm going crazy either...
Thanks a ton.
