Every disk is bulging in my neck and 2 are herniated?
I had an MRI and it reveals that I have 5 bulging disk and 2 herniated at the C6 and C7. My question is that I went to th Orthopedic Doctor and he believes it is carpal tunnel in my left hand an only couple of my fingers were numb and sometimes my whole hand. I went and had an EMG done for my upper arms and neck. The EMG Nerve Study that day revealed I DO NOT HAVE CARPAL TUNNEL. He also said my left arm was weak. I couldn't believe the doctor told me this at my visit. He also told me that the injections (nerve blocks) will not take care of the problem and it wil only prolong my problem and that I will need surgery to fix my neck. I don't know what to do. Mostly I don't want surgery is because I have had 5 surgeries in my lower back and nothing has changed in that. Any advise on these Nerve Blocks verses Surgery.
