Cervical Herniation C5/C6 - ongoing discomfort
Have seen the best docs there are. Had a bad bulging disc at C5/C6. Neurologist strongly suggested surgery; surgeon wanted me to give it time to resolve itself (90% do). Here I am 8 months later after two recent MRIs (regular and dynamic). MRIs show herniation is virtually gone by itself but I still have some pain in my neck and down my arm (with tingling). Will this too resolve itself? Any idea how long it will be or how I can speed this along? I believe I will receive some PT and I will continue to take anti inflammatories. I also take fish oil and drink lots of water. Any thoughts on resuming regular very active activities or should I be careful?
