Re: need tips and advice on a pinched nerve thx!

Hi,
I'd like to chime in....ditto on what Karin said.....I too, woke up one morning with the same symptoms.....arm/shoulder pain, numbness/tingling in one arm which eventually (over a month) spread to my entire body 24/7.
An MRI showed severe spinal cord compression, and I had ACDF c5,6,7 surgery May 5th of this year.

It took a few months for me to recover fully (I'm pretty much a wimp!) and I was doing fine until I slipped and fell 5 days ago...now all my pre-op symptoms are back and I'm on the percocet again...I guess a call to the doctor is in order!

Let us know what the MRI says and keep in touch and most of all ENJOY that recliner!

Jennifer
