I have a small herniated disk C5C6 does not touch the main nerve, but the pain is incredible , I can’t work, I can’t practice sport anymore, I can’t even walk?
Hello, I’m 23yo male, I had a pain in my neck started since 2013, the pain is medium to High. 24/7 till today, I had a TD scan and a MRI scan both results stated that I have a small herniated disk C5C6 does not touch the main nerve very much, other than this structure is well n fine. all doctors told me that it’s nothing serious and shouldn’t be a problem at all. But the pain is incredible , I can’t work, I can’t practice sport anymore, I can’t even walk!! I have to drive my way to destinations,
PS: I have a small scoliosis probably 4or 5degrees, sometimes it hurt a little sometimes it doesn’t .
What is wrong with me?! Does the MRI is not able to shows nerves?, do I have nerves problem?
Can you upload your MRI? Can you describe the area were pain is concentrated and if it is radiating to your arms or causing headache in the back of your head?
Also the pain peak us it in the morning or at the end of the day?
Did you do physical therapy?
I hope you can answer my questions to help you
You should upload your scan reports here and also tell that do you have weakness or numbness in your hands and legs?
You said you are unable to walk, is it because of pain or any other problem?
Please revert back with answers..
It seems this pain is physiological ly and psychological ly causing you problems…
So I need to see the MRI to tell you what can be done..
Anyway , you should start behaviour modification for cervical disc prolapses lesion asap , life style changes, sitting , sleeping on a suitable pillow ,driving less ,avoid text syndrome if you use phones for long times.. Etc .
Physiotherapy can help you correct your posture and relieve your pains ..
