I shattered two discs in my neck 17 years ago in a water skiing accident. Since then I've had 4 surgeries to repair my C-spine. I have found relief from time to time but each time I find a combination of meds that works the doctor takes me off for fear of addiction. I now am at my wits end. I have had to change insurance companies and doctors. This new primary care physician says I have degenerative disease and nothing he can do. My leg has gone numb and I have a hard time walking. He won't refer me to a specialist, says there is nothing they can do.
