Re: Worried about my spine.PLEASE HELP!!!!
In response to your concern about your spine and the tingling and numbness in your fingers and neck......
I have had 40 years of spinal surgeries and spine issues and I understand your fear. I would get to a neurologist or even your primary care physician and tell them what you are experiencing.
Tingling and numbness can be many things - usually it is from tight muscles causing a nerve to be impinged or inflammation which eventually goes away - however it can take up to a year or more when you are dealing with inflammation depending on your daily activity levels, what you eat, medications etc.
I am not a doctor but I would tell you to ask for a MRI of your neck, check for scoliosis (curvature of the spine), and tell your doctor how freaked out you are about what you are experiencing....
Many times the fear and not knowing makes things worse - believe me I have been there.
I would advise you to stay as active as possible and to start a meditation program. It will be the best thing you ever do with your life - I wish I would have started my meditation many many years earlier to help me cope with life better.
I will pray for your diagnosis and recovery.
