Firstly I'm Matt

I'm 25 and need some and advice on neck and and shoulder pain increase.

I hang sheetrock by trade and started having pain in my lower neck and shoulder area I went to see a physician he ordered an mri and recommended me to a neurosurgeon he told me I had a bulging disc at c6 in my neck and and I had an emg done as as well there was some irregularities in my rhomboids and similar muscles I have just dealt with the pain until recently.

Here is my where my problem is I had a auto accident while recreational dirt biking (no auto insurance coverage for this) well the pain has moved from just lower neck and shoulder blade to my lower to mid neck and shoulder down my upper arm as well now.

My question is did I make the disc bulge even worse or could there be another more serious problem.

My neurosurgeon physician doesn't have any open appointments until after thanksgiving and even then I may be seen until January.

Thanks in advance for any info

Sheetrockone88 ~ go to the ER. You need to have this looked at now, do not wait. It's traveling down on you. I have had two neck surgeries and 1 lumbar surgery. I had bulging disc's in my neck and it was traveling down my arm into my fingers. I was told by my neurosurgeon never wait when the pain is traveling. Keep us posted. Best Wishes
