My Back

Well for those of you that don't know I tore my back up pretty good. They think that I have a couple pinched nerves in my neck. The nerves are the C7 and C8 nerves to be specific. For those of you that don't know those are the long thoracic and mid thoracic nerves. They basically control your shoulder structure and your arm/little and ring finger. Luckily they are on my left side since I am right handed.

Best case scenario I am just having brutal spasms in my rhomboid muscles on the left side, whish the valium will clear up. Worst case scenario I have a herniated/torn disc in my back that may require surgery. I have an MRI scheduled for Thursday that should help answer all of the questions. My worst fear is they tell me that i need surgery.

Well I guess that sums it up I will keep you updated as I am.

Good Luck with that issue. Watched my Daddy fight disc surgery a couple times, and some other kind of surgery in his back. I know it aint no fun.
