I had my spine appointment March 12th and apparently I have a bulging disk. Going to physical therapy and waiting for pain management to start getting injections. However, my spine specialist is a very smart man. With everything I am experiencing (like dropping things, weird sensations going through and down parts of my body, not being able to button or open certain things, weakness, fatigue, etc), he has referred me to have nerve conduction tests in my arms and legs (I know I won't be a happy camper after it's done lol) and go from there. Wish me luck everyone!
Thanks for updating us on your last appointment results, I hope the disc problem turns out to be the sole cause of your symptoms. Please let us know the results of the nerve conduction tests. Best of luck. You'll get through this one, too!
