Herniated

Yes, that's me. Mr. Herniated. Herniated disk at c7, bulging on right side, pinching the nerve which is causing the numbness and tingling in my right arm, shoulder, elbow and hand. Mostly, the numb forefinger that I've had for weeks.

Oh boy. Next stop - Neurosurgeon. My guess is the answer will be "Surgery Now" or "Surgery Later" - disks don't repair themselves, even with drugs and therapy.

So, I'm a little depressed about this.

Getting old sucks.

Bummer. Do read the latest articles on back surgery and whether or not it's worth it before you make a decision, though.

Yeah, getting old sucks. Gaining wisdom is nice, but the physical breakdown bites.
