Hi i seeing my Gp again this afternoon as i suffer from Cervical spondilosis of the C5/C6 discs and have bone spurs pressing on my spinal cord.
Symptons are severe stiffness at base of neck, radiating up all over the left side of my face/head and this morning my eye and nose was streaming. My face also feels numb and tingly and i get a whooshing sound too in my head and dizziness.
I also suffer from Fibromyalgia/M.E too and the symptons of FM is all over body pain (nerve pains) and stiffness and can mimic CS. I also suffer TMJ on the same side of my face and find difficulty eating. I had a permanent headache too.
I have had an MRI scan and have been referred to the musclo skeletal service and saw them 5 months ago and have just had an appointment for the 18th May at Sheffield to see a spinal surgeon. I live in Lincolnshire.
I was also told to that i needed a second opinion on my
FIBRO as to be honest i just don't know what pain is what etc anymore and i am at my wits end with all this pain. I am housebound with ME and cant do much at all now. I havent heard a thing with the Rheumy.
I have made the appointment with my Gp as had enough of being fobbed off now. I saw a Neurologist 2 years ago but he found nothing untoward.
I cannot take any medication at all as i am so sensitive to ALL meds and tried them all over the years and some made me so ill i ended up in hospital.
I do take Fluoxetine 20mg each morning. Not because i am depressed but its well recognised it can help the pains of FM.
I also take 5mg Diazepam at night too.
I just wondered if any of you can describe the pains of CS please.
I have looked at many websites but am now getting so confused.
Good to meet you all and will get back to you later on.
