    Post Had a Cervical Facet Block

    Has anyone had a facet block ? I had a cervical facet block on 3/6/03. I have bulging discs at c3-4 and c4-5 and protruding discs with moderate compression at c5-6 and c6-7. This occurred after a work related injury. Today my entire left arm is numb from the shoulder to my wrist and my left hand is numb and tingling. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions? Anyone with experience in this area? Thanks, J.
