So it's been 4 months now since I have had this cervical neck pain. I guess I tweaked it or aggrevated it lifting weights. But i stopped lifting but it wasn't that bad and ive been resting. The MRI showed disk bulge in c5 -c6 well just about 2 months ago I started getting this pain in my left arm it would go from my shoulder down to my forearm. The pain would come and go. Same as the neck pain. So my neurologist recommended I did physical therapy for 4 weeks twice a week. I did that. No improvement. I actually feel my symptoms are getting worse. My left chest muscle, tricep, bicep and my forearm all go haywire and spasm so much and so hard it feels so crazy like it's taking control of my whole side. Also I can barely drive now because it hurts so bad plus the muscle spasming out of control. I recently talked to my neurologist a couple days ago and he prescribed me some steroid pills that I've been taking and haven't felt a difference. Then he also thinks that maybe the steroid injection in my neck might be beneficial to me so I have a consultation with an orthopedics spine Dr next week. I just don't know what to do. I feel like it hasnt been that long and I know these types of things take time to heal but the pain is getting more intense as well as the muscle spasms so I'm really concerned. Not just about the pain but how long is this going to keep up.
