I would, if possible get some information from the community.
Just over a week ago I started getting mild pain to the left side of my windpipe, I first thought that it may be Strep[ throat, the pain got a lot worse quite quickly. The pain to the left of my windpipe remained and it spread to the left side of my head and eventually into my left shoulder and left arm, I managed to get to the Doctor who sent me for an x ray and gave me a prescription for Tylenol 3 with codeine, this had no effect at all and I ended up at the hospital , they did a cat scan with dye.
The results of the X ray is as follows:
At C5-C6 there is severe disc narrowing and moderate sized endplate osteophyte formation, at C6-C7 there is more mild disc narrowing and smaller endplate osteophytes
The cat scan result was or is a calcific plaque at the carotid bulb.
My Doctor gave me another prescription for Endocet oxycodone,Ketoralc and cyclobenzaprine.
The majority of the bad pain has receded as long as I keep doping myself up, One pain remains and is costant, it is the pain near my windpipe on my left, about every 20seconds there will a liltle burst of something like a hot needle in this area running into my head.
Could anyone help me to identify what this is and why this is happening, I still get and feel this pain through the drugs.
What is the solution to the problems with the disc narrowing, I am waiting to go into hospital for an operation for a herniated disc, it is in my lower back.
I thank you for any help I may receive
