I have been fighting what I thought was dental pain for about a year and half now. Root canal, retreat it and finally had her pull the tooth. I told her last week I was still hurting on left side of face, down jaw, in neck etc. (also thought maybe tmj flare up) She said she has looked at everything and does not think it is teeth related. Maybe nerve in neck or something in shoulder. REALLY!!!
I feel like the shoulder is messed up but after 3 surgeries on the other one, I really don't want to face it. Also, know that I have a bulging disc in neck but the dr says not bad. I don't know which way to turn.
She ask have I seen a ENT, orthopedic or neurologist. I have not.
On another note, my back surgery in Nov 2012 was for decompression lam. I picked up MRI reports last week which was after surgery. It shows a mild broad disc bulge @ L4 L5. Mild anterolisthesis L4 on L5. and DDD. Does mild and broad contradict to anyone else and why wasn't it fixed? I am still it a good bit of pain here. What is the anterolisthesis?
