A lot of things have happened since I started this thread back on November 25th. My wife and I were in New Jersey visiting our daughter and her family. The next day, my neck and shoulder pain was so bad that we went to the nearest E.R., where the doctor on duty said the pain was probably from a herniated disc in the cervical spine. The following evening, I was unable to use my right arm to pass a dish at the dinner table, and the following morning I was unable to lift my arm at all. I can use the lower half just fine, but I cannot reach out with the entire arm....it just drops to the side. We drove 825 miles home on the Monday after Thanksgiving, and I visited our family doc as soon as possible, had an MRI of the cervical spine, which confirmed two herniated discs in the cervical spine, and then was referrred to a neurologist, who today did an electromyelogram (EMG), which showed diminished nerve activity to the deltoid muscle. Tomorrow I have an MRI of the shoulder and am probably going to need shoulder surgery to repair whatever is wrong there, and neck surgery to repair the herniated discs.
So, Cialis, I absolve you of all culpability. The pain has been intense. I've been sleeping about 3 fitful hours per night, and I look forward to the day when I get this cleared up.
Still, though my case doesn't seem in any way related to Cialis, others have brought up some good points for everyone who is fighting the ED battle, and that's a good thing.
I told my wife this evening that I think the remaining nerves down below told the nerve the serves my right arm that he's working way too hard. "Look," said the nerve down below, "I'm doing nothing at all and the guy keeps feeding me Cialis and other goodies." The shoulder nerve liked the idea and went on strike.
