Just got the MRI results back and they (doctors both DDS and MD) are looking for a NS now on my insurance. I live in a very rural area and most NS have moved from my region due to insurance purposes. So we are looking in nearby states. Dr sated did not look real bad!!! DDS stated different, he actually looked at the CD I gave him. Good and bad for me. Good maybe handled with injections bad (not really) means something else could be up with my Jaw! Stated all I had was a large disc protrusion 0.5 x 1 CM in the AP and transverse dimesnsions in C6-C7 and a bulging disc and bilateral unconvertebral hpertrophy at C5-C6, resulting in effacement of the thecal sac. MD thought this could be handled with injections. Hope that is all I need. I just want out of all this pain and get my mouth opened and jaw pain releaved to some sort of degree. Do injections help???? Looking for good or indifferent experiences. Thanks all?
