I suffered a c7 stable fracture Sept 09 and during my treatment (MRI) it was discovered I also have a herniated C3 and T8 disc. To my knowledge, they haven't bothered me. My neurologist told me "not to read too much into it" However, 2 weeks ago I started experiencing radiating pain across my mid back and wrapping around my rib cage to the front. It hurts to stand up straight and walk and also when I'm in the car, every time we go over a bump in the road I get shooting pains around my rib cage to the front of my torso. Could this be caused by my T8 herniation? If so, should I seek advise from the neurosurgeon who treated me for my neck fracture?
