Feb 24, 2017 · Herniated disk and pain. What helps? in Spine Health

Yes, its terrible pain. A lot of it is nerve and a lot of it is muscle. Depending on how bad the impingment is, will determine pain level. The percocet should definitely help. I found that you truly have to listen to your body. Reducing activity to almost nothing and finding a comfortable position while sleeping/sitting/lying down is important. I am actually almost ready to go back to work due to a lot of doing nothing and seeing a mackenzie physical therapy specialist i got injured in september if that tells you how long it takes. Degenerative discs are more painful than just an impigment.

Aprilarlady, im very sorry that you are experiencing the pain all over again. I suffer with terrible muscle spasms in my neck, shoulder and now lower back, i assuming because everything is so sensitive and out of whack. I appreciate your response to the surgery portion. Im hoping to see a spine specialist soon and will have answers then. It sounds like you are experiencing a pinched nerve with the herniation. The mayo website is very informational and has a list of discs with possible effects on tge different limbs and and areas of the body. I hope you get answers soon and can get to feeling better. I understand the pain and frustration of not knowing and just having the pain related to the injury.

Thank you aprilarlady. I went to pt for 2 months 3 times a week and it didnt help. Im trying to get as much information as i can to alleviate some of the apprehension im feeling. I appreciate your comments. What procedure did they use to repair the discs? Did they go through the throat or right into the spine? What was recovery like?

Thank you @predictable. Degenerative discs are a bit different than herniation. I am very happy for your friend that was able to receive such a life altering sugery. God is good. I hope she countiues to heal and thrive and be blessed with many years of pain free life.

Dec 17, 2016 · Spinal Surgery: What should I expect? in Spine Health

I have recently been diagnosed with c3/c4 bulging and c5/c6 herniated with nerve impingment. I am to see a spine specialist soon. My doctor was trying to be positive and said surgery may not be necessary, but i know it will be. What am i to be expecting? Will they want to do surgery on all four discs or just the two that are herniated? What is sugery and recovery like? Its scary. I have had four surgerys in the past four years and this one, for me, is the scariest. Any comments will be appreciated. Thank you!
