Has anyone ever had a pinched nerve in your neck where there was abnormal MRI but it wasn't significant? I have a pinched nerve with degeneration of discs but not issue with it causing narrowing in the spinal canal. The ortho doc is saying there should not be need for this much pain. Well, the pain specialist says, "Yes, there is." It causes pain in my shoulder, my jaw and into my arm. I am so upset because I am scared. Will this be forever. I have a hard time sleeping. An epidural worked during the summer, but only for 2 months. I have to have another one in January. My neck hurts (clearly) and the lack of sleep from it is a drag. So tired. When I do sleep, it's great. Did anyone have anything like this and then it got better? What helped it to get better? Chiro care can make it worse.
