    Hi Tinalyn,

    First welcome to the forum, they really are a nice lot here. Sorry your necks doing this but well I used to think mine would do that to me and it hasn't so there is a good hope yours wont to you either. With the disctomy and the fusion it should be better and well out of all the symptoms I ever have fear is the worst and yet, as time passes, the least founded. I really do wish you every luck and have you got a date yet? A cyber hug and a ton of hope for you. Cris

    But I didnt realise it could get worse! (Doctors not telling me everything maybe?)
