Unhappy Disc problem with pain and numbness in left arm

Please can anybody advise? Around 3 wkd ago I had pain between my shoulder blades from my back. Hadthis for couple of months now. I had severe pain in left shoulder and radiating down my arm, I lost strength inmy arm and both index and middle finger I have no feeling just tingling on touch. I had urgent mri of thoracic with shown disc deg in c6 c7 but not indepth report as this was in cervical, also ostecyte and slight spinal stenosis. The neuro team are sending me for urgent MRI of cervical as the thoracic scan shown no nerve pingement. I cannot flex my tricep muscle. Any help please.

Re: Disc problem with pain and numbness in left arm

I just wanted to welcome you to the board but you might get more information over on the Spinal Cord board because there are some great people over there with cervical problems and I am sure with some suggestions. I will tell you that I have had 3 cervical spine surgeries and 1 lumbar. I just had my last cervical surgery C6/C7 in January. I had the same terrible pain in my left shoulder blade and still have and my left hand is still having problems with numbness and tingling in the ring & little finger but it is still early in recovery. It did help my right hand so I am thankful for that. Unfortunately I had a bad fall 1 day after I got home from the hospital and it caused some really bad swelling internally so that is still causing problems. I am still having terrible headaches also from this surgery which I didn't have with the first 2. I am fused at C3/C4, C4/C5, C5/C6, C6/C7.

I hope you will get some help soon but I will tell you that I had some really bad bad pain before the surgery and it was every day.
