    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Bulged disc and lordosis

    I've found a culprit for a lot of the headaches I've been having. Do any of you have similar problems?

    Decreased disc space height anteriorly. At least minimal left neural foranimal narrowing. Moderately large left extrusion with minimal cord deformation (c5-6).
    C5-6 (moderately large left extrusion with minimal cord deformation. No abnormal signal.)

    I have two appointments this week with neurosurgeons to figure out what my best options are. I have not yet had my second opinion with a rheumatologist so I still don't know if I have Fibro or arthritis.

    Just wondering if anyone else out there is dealing with this.
