I'm having severe neck pain for almost 3 Months. My Dr will not write a narcotic. Nothing is working. I had an MRI and it appears I have 3 herniated/perteuding discs and stenosis all thru my cervical spine. He told me not to. Go. To the er for pain meds and used the term no Dr shopping.... I don't have a history of drug abuse or abuse of pain meds. He thinks ibuprofen, value and nuerontin will work. What do I do? I'm. Going to paste the impression of theri below. He is making me feel. Like my pain is not real. He is not takinge serious. He also works in the er so he basically black listed me. I can't sleep. Or do regular household chores.
I'm seeing a neurosurgeon Dec 26th. That's 2 long. I'm going mental. I hurt. Alot

VISIT NUMBER :34-0000-003

Medical Record Number : 0000
Date of Birth : 09/05/1979
Date of Exam : 10/26/2018
Referring Physician : FINE, MICHAEL JOSEPH
Baystate Wing Multispecialty
40 Wright Street
Palmer, MA 01069
Exam : MR - CERVICAL SPINE (C-) CPT 72141 -
Room Description : Wing GE Mob1.5 (S11)
Technique : Sag T1, Sag T2, Sag STIR, Ax T2*GRE, Ax T2
INDICATION: Right shoulder pain, neck pain.
TECHNIQUE: Multiplanar multisequence MRI of the cervical spine was
obtained without IV contrast.
COMPARISON: MRI of 08/01/2014.
FINDINGS: This examination is degraded by motion. There is loss of the
cervical lordosis. Otherwise, the cervical spine alignment is
maintained. The vertebral body heights are within normal limits.
Within the confines of motion, the bone marrow signal is unremarkable.
The visualized brain has normal signal intensities. There are
questionable T2 hyperintense foci in the left of the cord at C2-C3 and
the right aspect of the cord at C6, probably artifactual. No definite
cord signal abnormality is identified.
The prevertebral and paraspinal soft tissues are within normal limits.
The vertebral artery flow-voids are preserved.
The craniocervical junction and C1-C2 articulation are normal.
At C2-C3, there is a new tiny central disc protrusion and posterior
endplate spurring without spinal canal or foraminal stenosis.
At C3-C4, there are uncovertebral and facet joint spurs resulting in
moderate right and mild to moderate left foraminal stenosis. There is
no spinal canal stenosis.
At C4-C5, there are uncovertebral and facet joint spurs resulting in
mild left and no significant right foraminal stenosis. There is
posterior endplate spurring without disc bulging flattening the
ventral aspect of the cord without spinal canal stenosis. These
findings are similar to the prior examination.
At C5-C6, there is a minimal broad-based disc protrusion flattening
the ventral thecal sac without spinal canal stenosis. There are
uncovertebral spurs resulting in moderate to severe left and no
significant right foraminal stenosis. These findings are similar to
the prior examination.
At C6-C7, there is a minimal broad-based disc protrusion with a new
superimposed mild to moderate left paracentral disc herniation
deforming the ventral thecal sac and resulting in new severe left
foraminal stenosis in conjunction with uncovertebral and facet joint
arthropathy. There is mild to moderate right foraminal stenosis due to
uncovertebral and facet joint arthropathy, more apparent when compared
to the prior examination.
