What does a person do one side of your body keeps drooping and is weak ? pins and needles in the foot and fingers , hand are painful, so far all the docs have been able to find is a bulging disc at C6-C7 , for that Ive been through all kinds of therapy . injections, you name it!!! One doc would do surgery if it werent for the fact that I plan on leaving for Paraguay in dec. for two years. However at this point Im not so sure of going any more. , due to the fact that my hand is getting worse , I'll wake up in the morning to find my hand painfully curled inwards. My left shoulder droops as well , low enough it presses down on my ribs. Doesnt feel too great!!!
