Re: Bone spur on cervical spine with breathing issues?
I seem to have the same problem. 10 months of Dr. after Dr. Have multiple cervical issues. Bulged disks, stenosis, A large bone spur indenting my cord at the C5-C6 and a possible pinched nerve at the C7. About a month after the dx and taking a medrol pack, I started to have problems swallowing. Have seen the PCP, 2 ENT"S, Have a slightly enlarged thryroid that was biopsied, had vocal cord surgery 5 years ago, have GERD, asthma. NO answers. The spine specialist does not feel this is coming from the spurs. All seem to believe that the medrol pack aggravated my esophagus and is now causing spasms. I have given up because after so many Dr.s and test and it being almost a year without answers i don't feel anyone wants to claim this. Sometimes my throat is so numb I can't feel it. Very hard to swallow saliva when you can't feel your throat. All very coincidental that I did not have this problem before the neck injury or the medrol pack.
