Hi, I just read your message today because I have just been diagnosed with two herniated discs in my neck which was a result of a car accident on January 10th of this year. I am experiencing nerve problems in both arms and hands, severe muscle tightening around the neck and shoulders, etc. I am 50 years old and a female and have not worked since the accident. Would like to exchange symptoms, treatments and results. I am going to see a neurosurgeon on March 10th and would like to better understand the problem and the new treatments that are available.
