Cervical Stenosis with Spondylosis
I am 44yrs old and have had lower back pain since my late teens. I have arthritis in the lower back and herniated discs. One year ago I received an MRI of my neck as I was having problems. I was found to have Congenital Small Cervical Spine and two discs were herniated. One year later I have pain in my shoulder blades, tingling and pain in my arms (which has progressed from an achy constant pain) and pain in my chest. I get these chest pains also that they say arent my heart, which Im very happy about. I am wondering if anyone has the same problem that I do and do they get the sharp pains in the left chest area along with the pain in the back and arms? I have to believe this pain is caused from the neck problems as there is no other reason but nothing Ive read on what I have mentions chest pain. I also have a hard time swallowing things at times. The surgeon Ive seen tells me that when the pain gets bad again to come back. Im assuming that not sleeping well because Im dreaming about the pain going on in my body and not getting any lower than a 4 on the pain scale is not a good enough reason to help me.
