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.

hey, sorry you hurt. surgery if you must, how ever what go out can go back. check all options. have you been on the chiropractic route yet? massage can help. it is all about creating the space for the health to return.

a client had a "true nerve pinch" AND IT took almost 2 months for her to get all feeling back. with excellent massage therapy, some chiropractic and i think some physical therapy.

good luck.
