Overweight with bone spur and disc bulge. Taking steroid injections. Stabbing pain in the neck, nausea, migraines. Damage to spinal cord?

I am 35, 200 lb s, female with a bone spur in my neck and a bulging disk. One week ago I received steroid injections in my neck. That very night I felt a hot stabbing and shooting pain in my neck. It also went down the left side of my back, through my left shoulder and up into my head and behind my left eye causing me a migraine . I was up all night in severe pain, pain level same as labor. Now for a week I have been sick. Nausea, pain, migraines, cold and hot flashes, sweating, pain behind my left eye and dizziness. I am afraid that the doctor hit my spinal cord and is making me sick. What do you think?

Thanks for the query

You may be having independent cervical spondylosis and migraine. You will benefit with medications like topiramate (this will help you loose weight also), amitriptiline along with regular exercise and diet and life style changes. You may consult a local neurologist for the help who will guide you through examination and investigations.

Hope this clarifies
