Re: Help! I need your guys advice ASAP! (Neck herniation) (m)..

Hi greenacres....

That mri doesn't sound so hot...if i know what i'm talking about (and that's about a 50/50) the center of your disk is popping out and causing a c8 nerve irritation.

My advice is STOP going to the chiro!!! I can't stand those guys! They take away your pain sure...for about a 1/2 hour. Go get looked at by a real doctor who does more than crack your neck for you. A chiro will never be able to put your disk back into place for you.

Your pain is real and it must be dealt with! If you don't have a spine doc, find one. Go to your family doc and ask for a referral to a neurosurgeon or orthopedic surgeon. Disks and nerves require very specialized care...these docs go through years of extra training in order to receive the specialized degrees...please take advantage of that knowledge.

Wish I could give you more info, but that's all i got. Hang in there and don't give up hope. Keep us posted...i'll be thinking about you.
