How did it become numb?
No idea to be honest? It just seemed to happen one day any has never got better
where exactly is it numb?
Right shoulder mainly and it goes slightly into my armpit area and also slightly up the neck
have you had an MRI of the neck?
No, I have asked my doctor for one but she hasn't responded.
This is really quite simple.
You have a disc in your neck that is pressing on a nerve
You need a neck MRI
I am seeing my doctor on Monday and will demand one!
I guarantee this is the problem
I see it all the time
Don't leave until your doctor agrees
just lay on the floor if you have to :)
What would the treatment be?
Oh? What kind of surgery?
removal of disk
or piece of disk
but you will get relief
Huh? What is that? I will have to look that up!
surgical removal of the disk
it is a common procedure
Just read your reply. Thank you so much. You have been great :-D
thank you Julia :)
Did I do excellent work for you?
If so, would you mind rating me as such?
I appreciate it
