Has anyone ever heard of a time frame for increasing risk of permanent nerve damage for a spinal nerve root compression at C5-C6?
I began having a stiff neck & shoulder about 7 months ago. My symptoms increased, and I now experience neck and shoulder pain, tingling down my right arm (within past 2 weeks, even started in left arm), muscle weakness in right arm, muscle spasms in shoulders & shoulder blades.
I am terrified of permanent nerve damage, and I am leaning toward surgery, since C4-C5 is compressed and a bulge at C6-C7.
Again, I would love to know more about the risk of permanent nerve damage if I wait a month or 2 to have the ACDF.
Thanks so much. Super to have friends.:confused:
