Customer Question
I received a c6...

I received a c6 cerivical transforamia epidural injection for neck pain. I am a correctional officer on death row my neck still hurts. My doctor does not understand and is closed off when I explain that I can not go back to work because it could mean life of death for me and my co workers if I can not control those criminals. What should I do? He is sending me back in 1 week

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the neck pain? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?

Since August 2017. He is recommending surgery but I do not think I need it. I think he wants me out of his hair. The shot was given 12-26-17

I have pain shooting up the back of my neck giving me numbness at the top of my head making concentration difficult. My right arm has a jabbing pain. My headaches feel somewhat better when I lay down. Being a correctional officer on death row I need to be clear and in control

I did have an MRI and I do have a pinched nerve at the c6 and they said I have the beginnings of arthritis in my neck as well

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
