    Im 20 years old a culinary student I was having upper back, neck, and arm pain for two weeks until i could get into the doctor. The doctor ended up sending me straight to the ER. I had an X-Ray done and sent me home with muscle relaxers and vicodine. Within 32hrs i was back in the ER because the pain had worsen i couldn’t sit, stand, or walk because of the pain i was in. The kept me there another 7 hours putting pain relievers into my body and then sent me home with more pain reliever and a neck collar. Then i was sent to see a surgen about c4-c5, c5-c6, and c6-c7 being herniated. The surgen started me on the steriods and physical therapy.Ill also be getting the steriod injections which they are home to relieve the pain of my right arm. But lately i have be having some minor issues in walking at times it’s not alot but enough that i noticed and did not know if it is related to my injury or not? my other question was how common is it for someone my age to have this many herniated cervical disc?
