You may remember me from a previous post, I am a 52 year old female who has been suffering from a trapped nerve which causes pain to run from my neck, shoulder blade, under arm, all the way down my arm and even sometimes my chest and rib cage.
I have had an MRI scan which showed no significant neural compression although there are Spondylotic changes throughout the cervical spine and Osteophytes.
I had been visiting a Chiropractor which didn't help so I am now seeing an Oesteopath. I have so far had 4 sessions with him and although the pain had been getting slightly better it was still constantly there. Over the past couple of days it has got quite painful again and this is getting me really down.
I also suffer terribly from Health Anxiety so am finding all this really difficult to cope with.
What I can't seem to understand is that if the MRI shows no significant neural compression why I still have so much pain. I get a prickly sensation in my neck and shoulder blade plus pain which as I said before travels all the way down my arm (no numbness or tingling in my hand or fingers).
I have had this now for 3 months and just cannot seem to see any light at the end of the tunnel.
I would be so grateful for some feedback and if anyone else has suffered something similar.
Thank you all for taking the time to read my post.
