I am not sure that all of the pain and swelling you are experiencing is from a bulging disc. I would check in with your doctor and ask him what he suggests.

Take care, Annette

Just because you don't require surgery, it does not mean you will just get worse and stay in pain. What does your neurologist suggest you do?

Take care, Annette

Unless you see him again, you won't know what he would suggest for a treatment plan, now that the surgeon has said surgery is not right for you.

The die test they did with the CT scan may show the doctor exactly what the bulging disc is pressing on, if anything. I had one of those once, shortly before I had surgery for a herniated
disc at C5-6. It just gave the doctor more information than he got from an regular scan.

I assume by "fribiro" you mean Fibromyalgia, also shortened to fibro or FMS. This can make treating any painful stimuli a bit more challenging. But, not impossible. I have DDD or DJD (different doctors use different terms) of my cervical spine and FMS also. My pain is adequately treated, and I live a happy, fulfilled life, though I cannot work as a nurse anymore. That was a hard transition, but I got through it.

Take care, Annette

You take care of yourself. You will get through this just fine. Do what you can do to help yourself, and follow your doctor's instructions (after you do your own research, of course).

Take care, Annette

It is hard to tell if the pills made your pain worse, or if it just happened to get worse while you were taking them, and would have anyway.

Tell your doctor and see what he says.

Take care, Annette
