Hi all I am new to this forum and I am glad I found somewhere I could express my thoughts. So about 4 months ago I took a bad knock to my shoulder leading to an impinged nerve in shoulder. At the same time I was studying for an exam, and I studied so much that I wound up hurting my neck. I found out 2 months ago I have a bulging disc C3,C4. I have done everything my doctor recommended physical therapy 3 times a week for about 5 weeks and I just had a relapse. My neck was feeling better and all of a sudden I started to have spasms again. I work long hours at sittng at a desk at my new job, and I feel depressed, because I feel like my neck will never get better. Worst part is during the winter I will be putting in 12-14 hours days 6 days a week so I will not be able to get off work for physical therapy. I just had a relapse I feel like this pain will never subside,any advice greatly appreciated. (I am a 22 m and I know I am way to young to go down the road for surgery yet)
