IN MAY I HAD GONE TO REGULAR DOCTOR WITH COMPLAINTS OF NUMBNESS IN BOTH ARMS AND HANDS, HAD XRAYS DONE, RESULTS SHOW MILD DISC DISEASE AND DORSAL SPURRING AT C5-C6 MINIMALLY IMPINGING ON THE NEURAL FORAMINA. TOOK RESULTS TO ORTHO DOCTOR, HE TOOK XRAYS OF HANDS ONLY, (DON'T KNOW IF HE EVEN LOOKED AT SPINE XRAY I GAVE HIM), SAID HAD CARPEL TUNNEL BOTH HANDS, SENT TO NEURO, HAD EMG, HE ALSO SAID CARPEL TUNNEL BOTH HANDS, BACK TO ORTHO, HE READ EMG, SAID SEVERE CARPEL TUNNEL BOTH HANDS, NEEDED SURGURY ASAP. HAD SURGURY RIGHT HAND 8-13, LEFT HAND 8-27. RELEASED BACK TO WORK ON 9-10, NO RESTRICTIONS. (WAS WORKERS COMP CASE). PAIN IN ENTIRE ARM, THUMB, SHOULDERS, PALM, WRIST ARE UNBEARABLE. WENT BACK TO NEURO, HE SAID JUST TOO EARLY AFTER SURGURY, PAIN FROM THAT, GAVE ME MORE PAIN MEDICATION AND SENT BACK TO WORK, SAID TO COME BACK 10-18 AND HE WOULD PUT ME ON THERPY IF STILL HAD PAIN. I ASK HIM ABOUT MY NECK AND SHOULDERS AND HE SAID JUST TOO EARLY. NEITHER DOCTOR HAS EVER MENTIONED THE SPINE ISSUE. THE PAIN NOW IS SO INTENSE I CANNOT COPE MUCH LONGER. I HAVE REQUESTED A SECOND OPION WITH W/C BUT THAT WAS 2 WKS AGO AND STILL NOTHING. NOW THE PAST WEEK MY ANKLES IN THE MORNING ARE VERY STIFF AND PAINFULL AND MY TOES HAVE BEEN GOING NUMB. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS AS TO WHAT I CAN DO OR DOES IT JUST SOUND LIKE I WILL HAVE TO COPE WITH THE PAIN UNTIL I CAN TALK SOMEONE INTO CHECKING INTO THE SPINE OR GETTING AN MRI OR SOMETHING. PLEASE ANSWER!!
