Hey everyone, hoping to get some insight into the problem I'm having.

I've had numbness in my fingers and foot starting from a year ago. I may have actually hurt myself from severe lifting. About 6 months later, I started having neck pains.

I had an MRI done about a month ago and it was discovered that I had a pretty big disc herniation in my neck. I don't recall exactly which disc it was but, it's one of the top 3 discs in my neck.

About a month ago is when the severe pressure's formed at the base of my skull. The pressure was a severe dull pain that was around my upper neck/base of the skull location. I've had a lot of sleepless nights due to this pressure on my skull. There have been a couple of times where I swore I was having memory loss. One time, I actually forgot how to count money properly and a couple of times, I've had difficulty recalling certain things I've done a couple of days before.

I had an epidural injection done about 4 days because a couple of the neurologists suggested an epidural to help out with the neck pain.

This all honestly frightens me and I wonder if there is a possibility that the herniated disc in my neck could be pressing on my brain. Hence the pressure on the base of the skull and the memory loss?
