Well my DH (59, diabetic, heart disease, bad low back, chronic pain issues) recently developed severe pain in his shoulders and tingling/numbness down his right arm. He's been in a cervical collar and on muscle relaxers for over a month. Traction didn't help. Since it's been over a month, he went to a neurosurgeon last week (including travel, a total of 5 hours out of our day for a 15-20 minute handshake meeting). So early, early tomorrow he will have an MRI on his neck to see what's going on.
Asking for prayers that whatever it is can be fixed, preferably without surgery.
I'll try to update when we know something.
Thanks for listening,
