From C3 to C5. Nasty stuff. Looking at the MRI it looks like I've got two aliens on my spine. Sheesh. I'm a little doped up, can't work or barely even type. The good news is I'm making progress.
Does this stuff happen to all people when they get into their fifties? Or is it that I've been through the ringer so to speak?
I have some cousins - and they're not old, either! - who are prone to back problems...just don't know about your question, but I don't think disc problems are inevitable with age.
