Re: Bulging Disks in neck. Any success without surgery

Hi all

Once there is a positive signal there is damage to the cord..this can be so slight that you may not notice it..but it probably won't get better without physically removing whatever is compressing the cord.. dont' get pain and cord compression confused.. I had what I considered to be tolerable pain (Pain is really subjective) but realized I was gradually "losing myself".. decreased sensation is sneaky because you slowly become used to it and adapt and forget what normal was like.. decreased strength you adapt and do things differently... then eventually bladder issues etc ..take this seriously...go for a second or third opinion of course but do it now... you don't want things to get worse..
