    Found out this morning I have several disks in my neck that are herniated and this is why I have so much pain in my dominate arm that's not going away. I now have nerve damage in that arm.

    Where do I go now. What happens next. Do I live with the rest of my life on pain meds that really don't work anymore. Dr. says he doens't like to do neck surgery so I guess that means that I suffer.

    My physical therapist wants me to see a specialist that she can refer me to. I'm just getting so tired of seeing Dr.s and having tests, x-rays, MRI's. I want the pain to go away but I'm sure you can understand how tired I am.

    Any help out there.
