Right side pain with Left side herniation
I injured my neck, initially the pain was across the back of my neck with pain on my right shoulder and right side of the neck. I went to PT and had an MRI, the MRI showed a herniation of C5 and C6 on the left side. After 2 weeks of PT, the right shoulder pain was lessened, but now I have severe pain on the left side of my neck, with pain and numbness in my left arm and hand. Has anyone ever heard of pain on the right when the herniation was on the left? Wondering if it could have been pain from compensating??? Any thoughts?
