Hi everyone-just when I thought things were getting better.. I had my MRI done and my PCP called sameday and said I have a disk at C5,6 that is pressing on my spinal cord-thus the terrible pain I have been having at the base of my neck radiating to the shoulder blades and down my spine...ughh
Now I am scheduled to see the Physiatrist to do EMG test and help with better pain management-I am currently on Neurontin,Vicodin,Flexeril-my PCP said he felt the Physiatrist would be better at dosing oxycodone,etc but I told him I didnt want to use those meds-so I am trying to get through the pain with just the Vicodin.My diagnosis of Fibro was fairly recent-6 months
ago and this disk problem started 2 months ago-what a horrible roller coaster!
I am sorry this post is so negative-I guess I just needed to vent...I havent
told anyone at work-my job is really demanding,50 + hrs. a week and I am
just trying my best to keep up..Does anyone know if they could use any
steroid injections to allow me to keep working and help with the pain ? My
PCP is hoping the Physiatrist can help or else surgery might have to be done..
I am scared..
