I am geting physical therapy but it doesnt seem to help. I also go to a chiropractor. It helps for the day but by the next day, I am still in pain. Has anyone else experienced these symptoms. I am wondering about acupuncture and epidural as a cureall. Is anyone else going through this terrible pain and if you are getting relief, please tell me how.
I have 2 bulging disks now and had c5/6 removed but they tell me they cant do surgery on the other 2 so yes i am going through your pain and its hell for me its caused depression and turned my life upside down.. i had the epidural shots they didnt work im now on pain meds but theyre starting to not work now and drs here wont perscibe anything stronger . i would love to have the answer too.. sorry i wasnt much help i need help too.
I also had herniated disks and bulging disks. I tried physical therapy and it made me hurt worse. The doctor was unable to get the needle in for the epidural because of scar tissue from previous surgeries. I wish I could tell you there was a cureall for your pain. I ended up having five surgeries. There are other things to try besides surgery. You could have a morphine pump implanted. You could also try a tens unit. You should see a pain management doctor to find out what he or she suggests. I wsh you the best. Scooter
