Update #3: Neck Pain

Even though I have already touched on this a bit... it was on the list so I will cover it.

A few weeks ago my neck started hurting REALLY bad. It got worse and worse. Then my left arm went numb. This freaked me out.

I went to the doctor he prescribed Prednisone (steroid) for 5 days.

No help at all.

Went back to the doctor. He ordered an MRI. 

It showed that I had 4 bulging disk and one herniated disk.

I went to the specialist yesterday - got a steroid injection this morning - here I am.

Stiff, annoyed, and hoping that it works.

The next step is surgery. Pray this won't have to happen.

They think the injury is from a car wreck I had last November or Cheerleading for 15 years.
