Re: Could these symptoms be Myelopathy?

Hi Mona,

Your post brought tears to my eyes. I have the same symptoms. Like my nerves are super excited. Some days, I have little pain. But some days, like today, my arms and legs ache... My neck rarely hurts??? But sometimes, my whole head feels very heavy and I get dizzy. Sometimes, my legs feel very weak. I think since they are in constant twitching. Sometimes, the area between my shoulder and neck hurts. The only thing that keeps me going are my three kids too. I had four days in Sept. with no pain??? Then I started to swim and all the pain came back with a vengence. I didn't know at the time that my problems may be a disc issue.

FINALLY had a neck MRI today. It took nine months of constant complaining for of the doctors to recognize that it may be a disc problem. He is still not convinced this is the cause, but I KNOW BETTER...
My fear is that there is really nothing they can do...

Have you tried PT?

Best Wishes!!!
