I am probably posting this in the wrong area but---I was having problems with my left arm--droping things unexpectantly and having shooting pains down to my hands with my last two fingers burning. I had an MRI today (thank God I work in a rad dept...) My disc at C 5-6 is herniating and has formed a osteo spur behind it which is pressing on my spinal cord on the left side. I am soooo scared. I hae contacted my doctors office for a refferal to a neuro surgeon. Does anyone else have this problem and what do you do about it? I knew I could post this due to the fact as P_RN said, you are a great bunch. Also, responded to a code in the Professional building (not even the hospital) and the man passed away. He was only 56. His wife said they were expecting it soon. I cried with her, after I left her and am crying now. Thanks for listening to this pushy, sometimes overbearing wimp.
