Neurologist or Neurosurgeon???
I found an old thread with this same title, but I didn't really get the answer that I wanted.
I have two bulging disks in my cervical area. C-5, C-6. I have a bad "pinch" on the left side of my neck/shoulder that doesn't hurt 24/7, just with certain movements of my neck. Sometimes though, my entire neck hurts. More muscular....maybe because of holding my head in a certain way because of the pinch.....I don't know.
I have been to a pain management doctor. I have had 3 of the steroid shots, and 2 blocks. Nothing has worked at all. He now wants to burn that nerve. I'm not confident in this doctor anymore.
I want a second opinion....do I got to a neurologist or a neurosurgeon? From what I understand, my condition is probably not something that would require surgery at this point. I also have a arachnoid cyst on my spine, but that is not causing any problems now. I don't know what direction to go next. I'm stalling on the nerve burn for now.
