3 level prominent cervical disc bulge
Hi Sarah, my name is Nicole from Sydney. I am 32yrs old & have 3 young children. I'm not quite sure when my injury occurred but this is how it began for me....in April I had some wrist weakness, I had just finished breastfeeding & increased my weight training, so put it done to that. Then the pain moved to elbow & forearm area, like a tendonitis pain. Then through my biceps & shoulder area with pins & needles of a night time through most fingers. The neck was probably the least bothersome, except for first thing in the morning, when it was very stiff & sore. Eventually I had an MRI, which showed prominent disc bulge C4-c7 & an annular tear at C5.
I have just finished reading over your 'back sufferers bible' & found it very interesting but nothing really focusing on the cervical spine. Do you have any suggestions on exercises I can do myself & a realistic recovery time? I have now had 3 weeks off from all training. The pain has improved but only by about 20%. My arm pain is the most aggravating & painful part.
Thank you so much for your time & help, I really value your expertise,
