Hi guys, I have really appreciated all of you that have replied to my posts, it has been a great help. As I said on an earlier post I have an appointment with the neurosurgen on July 17th. I have been in alot of pain for the last week so have been icing my neck every couple hours, seems to help for a little while. I called my neurologist & asked them if they could do or give me anything to relieve the pressure on my spine while I wait for my other appointment and she gave me Lyrica. Has anyone heard of this drug or used it before? I finally broke down last night and took one and it did relieve some of the pain but made me feel just out of it. There is no way I could take this during the day!
The burning sensation that I have in my arm and shoulder has now spread to the back of my neck and left shoulder blade, feels very strange. I am hoping that I have not done something to make it worse.
Thanks everyone, hope your day is great!
