Hi Shan. Sorry to hear about your neck problem. I ended up having to have those two discs replaced, but mainly because they were pinching a nerve. In my case, my neck just hurt all the time for years. It felt "tired" and my shoulder muscles hurt. They felt like if I could just get a shoulder/neck massage that they would feel better. But when someone would rub the muscles in my neck, it felt like they could just never reach deep enough to help. As time went by the pain got worse. Then I was rear-ended in a car accident and the pain got much worse. That is went I went to the doctor. If you are having any kind of "tingling" or "numbness" in an arm or hand, you may have had a nerve pinched. But I'm pretty sure that shows up on an MRI and if the doctor didn't say anything about that, you probably do not. The only thing I can suggest, if the pain is getting worse on a constant basis than I'd think you were getting worse. Please don't wait to find a doctor because if I had not let it go on for so long, there's a chance the doctor could have treated me without surgery and now I have permanent nerve damaged. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
