I woke up at 5 am last Thursday morning with extreme pain coming from my scapula on my left side and I could hardly turn my head to the left. Figured I had slept wrong so made an appointment with a chiropractor for an adjustment. Got that on Friday morning. Had increases pain later that day with my left arm starting to go numb. Wife took me to emergency and I spent the next 5 hours being ran through every test known to man for heart issues. Heart checked out ok so the sent me home.
Fast forward to Sunday morning and pain has me in tears. I had been unable to sleep since all this started because of the pain. Wife takes me back to ER. They ran scans on my neck and found I have a ruptured disc at the base of my neck. Shot me full of steroids and pain meds and sent us to drug store to pick up more meds after I was discharged. Waiting to see the neurosurgeon later this week to discuss options. Needless to say I’m bummed out.
