: Thanks Jeff for replying to me. Did you have weakness/numbess too? Are they suggesting surgery?
: And where did you have Discogram done at?
: Was your injury from MVA or trauma? I told the drs. I am willing to have discogram done but I have'nt heard back from the office yet. To make matters worse, I used to be a X-ray tech and I know way too much about how the Drs. can inflict pain to patients!! I never helped with this particular exam so thats why I am ignorant about how bad it can be. I have a pretty high level of pain now so it does scare me. I also am ready to go for a second opinion after test is done to make sure that things are handled propertly.
I really dont have any numbness in any extremeties. My pain generates in two places. One is an allmost constant pain and tightness in the center of my back spreading outwards into my shoulders, sometimes spasmodic, the second is itermitent pain surrounding my neck, pressure with the feeling that my neck is about to explode.
I havent gotten my results on disco-gram back yet so dont know if surgery is an option. Good luck
