Hello Hen
Dit klink basies asof daar "wear and tear" verandering is wat die diskusspasies tusse die 5de en 6de nekwerwels betrek en asof daar effe op die senuwee gedruk word wat seker vir jou 'n naald en speld gevoel in die hande ens kan gee en ook jou nekpyn kan verklaar. 'n MRI is maar die best manier om te sien wat aangaan en 'n besoek aan 'n neurochirurg dalk ook. Hoop jy kom reg.
