Hello all. Several hours after a routine 14-mile training run last weekend, I felt a twinge in my neck that within a few hours became full fledged right side neural pain radiating to the end of the fifth finger. The pain has been acute and relatively continuous, with sleep deprivation and weakness in the right arm. I cannot drive, missed four days of work and went to the office only today with my wife driving me. The PT has recommended deferring exercises until the pain is diminished. An MRI has confirmed a right paracentral disc protrusion at C7-T1 extending to the right neural foramen, thus the C8 nerve pain. I plan to see a neurological surgeon early next week for a baseline assessment. I would be interested in others’ experiences on recovery (or repair), as well as non-narcotic and post-steroidal pain management.
