Hi, I joined a long time ago but just lurked in the shadows trying to learn from everyone. I had a right side C4,5 and C5,6 decompression/laminectomy done on 2/12/15 and never had the pain go away, I have tried shots, massage, chiropractic, PT and although sometimes they help for short periods none has really stopped the pain. Over the last 6 months the pain has increased a lot. My regular Dr. treated me like some kind of drug addict and even refused to order a new MRI. So I spoke to my Rheumatoligist and he ordered a new MRI but is out on a med leave suddenly and so now I have the results and no one to interpret them. After my reg Dr (she is actually a nurse practitioner) made me feel like I am crazy or an addict, Ive started wondering if maybe I am losing it. I am not addicted to anything because I havent had any narcs or anything like that in over a year and never took much of it anyway. I would appreciate it if anyone can twll me if the tremendous pain in my neck and shoulders is related to these results: Impression: Multilevel disk osteophyte protrusion and mild central canal stenosis C4-C5 disk osteophyte indents the ventral surface of the thecal sac. Mild central canal stenosis is demonstrated. the right neural foramen is mildly narrowed. the left neural foramen is mild to moderately narrowed. C5-C6 disk osteophyte indents the ventral surface of the thecal sac and abuts the anterior surface of the spinal cord. the central canal is mildly narrowed. neural foramina appear mildly narrowed bilaterally. C6-C7 and C7-T1 central canal and neural foramina appear patent. I was told this and An EMG I had done and havent seen or heard much about have been sent to the neuro/spine surgeons that did the previous "repair". I live in very northern rural Maine and am feeling very alone with all this, any comments/insights would be very much appreciated. oh, and what I do know about the EMG the nurse stated that there are right side problems from neck thru to hand and some left side as well. This doesnt tell me anything, I dont know if it helps anyone looking at this? Thank you for letting me vent and hopefully someone might have some ideas and maybe some support....I am very scared and feeling isolated.
