Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Yes had x ray - which showed two neck bones closed in - all doc gave me was tramadol, co-codomo, ibuprohen and diazepam. feel groggy all the time and cannot walk- now having physio but after a few hours of getting up my neck hurts and pain in the upper part of my left arm - doctor did not explain
I think that you are having problems in the bones and discs of the neck and back. You certainly do need to have this investigated by having an MRI done and then I would refer you to a pain medicine specialist and a neurosurgeon after the MRI. Physiotherapy and pain medications are all good but I would like that you should have an MRI because x rays are no good in diagnosing spine problems with accuracy.
thankyou i will certainly go back to the doctors-and ask for one. They dont like sending us for them cost we have to fly to another island - (we have to pay for the doctors andphysio and such like). I know i can't keep taking the painkillers as they are making me ill. thanks again
