at what stage did you look into surgery? I'm almost at stage 3.

      I had my stimulator implanted 6 years ago because I was having a nonstop headache.

      I'm going to be asking my doctor to request current imaging. My spine feels like it's gotten worse. I'm afraid of surgery. Especially being under 30yo

      I couldn’t sleep because of my neck; the MRI said that there was no space for a cortisone injection and that my spinal cord was injured and in danger of becoming deformed. I had no choice but to opt in for C5 neck disc replacement. Currently my L4 and five are 80% displaced but I’m nowhere near the pain threshold I was with my neck so I’m waiting.
