I had neck surgery in an emergency... I flinched and a week later had finger pain , then back pain , saw my doc and got a pain shot that didn't help , then went to ER and got x-ray and they said they couldn't find anything and gave me more pain meds and then I saw a neurosurgeon who sent me for MRI and found that when I flinched, I chipped my disc and a fragment was trapped between two disc and was paralyzing my left upper quadrant... I regularly did aerobics with weights and was VERY FIT and young with toddlers. Two weeks into this ordeal the surgeon removed the fragment and it took me months on end to recover the muscles. I couldn't push myself up on the bed with my arm, had to ROLL off the side of the bed. Now arthritis in that part of my neck.
I SAY USE MAGNESIUM AND DRINK WATER WITH SEA SALT IN YOUR DIET prevent this happening to you.
This surgeon did three operations that week for this same condition......1990
