as of that time previous MRI showed bulging disc
at C4/5 and, I believe, T1/2. Nothing serious back then.
So condition is worsening with time, sedentary lifestyle -- but now in very acute stages of neck and left arm pain, constant pain killers, doing little to dull pain. I have consulted with laser spine institute in Tampa, FL, they recommend multiple percutaneous endoscopic laser discectomy. I have not seen a surgeon local to me, but my doctor thinks he would recommend disc replacement.
