Any advice????

Ok so couple weeks ago I had a epidural nerve block done on C7-T1. Felt better first 5 days and then the severe pain was back and been back in full force. See the pain mgmt doc tomorrow to find out what next step could be. I am dreading surgery and know that it's a matter of time before it's a must.

I have arthritis in cervical spine and C2-C3 have arthritis on the facet joints. That disc area was never a issue before even back in Feb when I had a MRI. Recent mri was in June. The herniation of C7-T1 is new. Also herniation in C4-T1 (all of those discs) there is a moderately narrowing of spinal cord. C2-c3 is only mild.

That is a big change to me in just 5 months. What are some of your experiences? I also have pressure feeling in my neck and neck all the way up to my nose and ears is numb. Sometimes I have trouble swallowing or it feels like there's a lump in my throat.
