Comment from: Robin, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: April 11

I have had neck and upper thoracic pain since 2005 from a minor car accident. Finally after getting MRI to reveal herniated discs C-4/5 C-5/6 C/7, I am on pain medications and getting facet injections. Recently I went to a surgeon who told me, my scoliosis I found out about minor T-3/T-4 only, which never gave me pain or trouble growing up, was now my problem. I also have degenerative disc disease, have lost 1 1/4 inch in height and my left shoulder is higher. New MRI revealed scoliosis now C-4 /C-7 T-1 /T-5.
