Had x-rays today of my neck as they suspect the problem is there. Some arthritis noticed and I will start 6 weeks of PT to strengthen the muscles. After that, an MRI (which they should already do) and decide what else is needed. They can't see the actual disc issues without an MRI, but insurance always wants the cheapest option done 1st. I've already had pinched nerves in my neck and lower back for years, I suspect this is worse.
