Over a month that ago I woke up with a sore neck and headache. I thought I slept wrong. So I took a few ibuprofen before heading into work and I was good to go. I notice doing my paper work I couldn't bend my neck that far and I bothered me. (I work factory work and lift anywhere up to 70 lbs while running 8 injection molds.) Later that night i my back started to bother me as well. I did report the issues to my boss and nothing happen. So I finally got to see my doctor, told her what was going on and really nothing happen. I was put on a muscle relaxer and 800 mg of ibuprofen. Now I'm coming down with a slight cold and notice the middle of my back under my shoulder blades would hurt up into my neck mostly the left side when I sneezed, cought or laugh hard. So I went back to my doctor a week later and nothing had improved. I had to see another doctor about my neck, found out I had 3 disc out of place 3 inch's from where they are supposed to be at. He adjusted me, took me off work and put to PT. Next day I went to PT, did my evaluation with her and found out my right side was higher them my left. Ok so I'm being told all of their with NO X-ray? Next went to the chiropractors office told them what was going. They took the x-rays and found out that I had a deteriorating C4 and C5 disc, bone spurs from my neck to middle of my back, arthritis and my spine was twisted one inch to the right. As the weeks went on, off work, left side at 48 percent stranght, going back and forth to PT and chiropractor it seems like nothing had happened other then range of motion with pain. Got my MRI done and found out I have a protrusion in my C4-5 and a extrusion in my C6-7 with a large disc in C4-5 area. And Central canal is at 5mm. So what happens from here? Fusion? I have read alot of thing on the internet about fusions. I do have tingling in my left arm down to my elbow, my left shoulder blade really doesn't want to more and I'm hearing more and more grinding in my with front headaches. Please chime in, thank you.
