I went to see my regular family Doctor because I was having very bad pain in my left shoulder and arm, I also had some numbness in my fingers. Anyway, he had me go do an MRI and after reviewing the results referred me to a neurosurgeon . My question is what would be the best kind of specialist to go see. My MRI report stated that I have a minor bulging disc " C-7 and C-6" In my cervical spine that is pinching a nerve. I have heard a few bad things about neurosurgeons and am just wondering if I should just find another kind of Doctor.
