| | Please Help! herniated disc in cervical spine c5/6 * I'm so worried
I'm new to this site, actually new to this whole health forum thing in general.
I'm a healthy, young mom (25yrs.old) no real health concerns or injuries.
Last week I woke up with severe pain in my left arm/shoulder
Thought I slept wrong, so I waited 6 days and by then the pain was unbearable!
Went to my husbands chiropractor (first time I've ever been to one) . He gave me an exam and immediately sent for an MRI. THAT DAY!
Saw me the next day and went over my results
I am devastated. I'm terrified. I can't eat (2days now) so nervous.
I've had other injuries such as a torn meniscus, rotator cuff ...
Both times I received a cortisone steroid injection and PT (physical therapy) and recovered with no surgery. This however, this .... my neck??!! Scares the daylight's out of me.
I'm scared to pick up my youngest, scared to move the wrong way. My neck, spine, its all very important (obviously!)
I guess I'm looking for someone who has been through this before, to talk to.
My diagnosis is written in my profile not sure if just shows up or what.
Please help me, my anxiety is going crazy
