Good evening Ray. What a welcome and meaningful post. Congratulations on understanding that there are no miracle "fixes". I think @jenniferhunter's story pretty much covers the waterfront so I will just say that I had several years of painful and troubling cervical stenosis.

Finally, when I could no longer get much-needed rest at night I turned to my shoulder surgeon for help. He immediately took me to meet the surgeon who saved him from similar pain and tragedy. I had cervical surgery complete with titanium fusions that essentially turned my life around.

Good luck to you and it would be very helpful if you could keep us updated on your PT and neurosurgeon visits.

May you be physically well
May you be mentally well.

Chris

Good morning, Chris

Thanks for your message! You're right: I'm not counting on an "easy fix"––realistically until I meet with a surgeon (others, too), I'm no idea what my "fix" will entail––nonetheless, it is such a relief to finally have a name to attach to all these "weirdnesses" that have been plaguing me for years. Trying one kind of a specialist, then a different kind, then another, year-after-year: I've felt like I've been playing a never-ending game of medical Whack-A-Mole!

I'm still waiting for those two first appointments: cervical PT, and the neurosurgeon. At your invitation, I will keep you posted as things progress.

Cheers!
Ray
