Can no longer lift left arm from C5-C6 Herniations. What does this mean?

I'm in extreme pain from my neck to my shoulder, left arm, arm pit, forearm,and hand is completely numb. It is starting to go down the right side. I have had a lot of PT, pain meds, nothing is helping and keeps getting worse. I'm supposed to be going in for a Steroid shot in my C6-C7 this week. I can not even move, laying still is the only thing that gives me a but of relief. I'm at a loss. Should I call my Ortho Dr. back to tell him that I can no longer move my arm? Could the herniations have gotten worse? Thank you for any help.

  • Absolutely call him. Any symptom that gets that drastically worse is worth reporting immediately.
  • Thank you so much for replying! I will be calling now for sure. I can't thank you enough!
