Good news, ms is not the culprit. Had a brain mri and a cervical spine mri with symptoms of dizziness, arm, shoulder & leg burning & tingling. My neurologist said a have a large disk herniation at c4-c5 that is pushing straight back into the spine. My next appointment is with the neurosurgeon to see if I need surgery. This has been going on for 4 months now and I just want it fixed.
Has anyone else had surgery for this? Can you tell me how the recovery time was and if your symptoms went away?
I would appreciate any information, thanks!

  • you should see if they can give you physical therapy first. I had PT for the same herniated disc and it really helped. That part of my journey is over thankfully.
