No, it is not. My ortho dr. said my neck would “heal on its own” — this is year three.

The other upper body and hand/arm stuff has been years as well. Neuropathy is SO hard to treat.

Taking care of yourself is so crucial. The CBD oil helps me a lot! Just listen to your body. If it bothers you — don’t do the thing that bothers you. Take DAYS off from activities that bother your symptoms. Healing is slow. I have to limit everything I do.

But I am 46 and I have dealt with this for over 20 years so I am a bad case — you are early. You can avoid the damage I have done.

Don’t worry too much — it is just a thing to manage.

Rest, care, self-care — all of it. Just do what you know your body needs. From your article it sounds like you are on the right path and being very sensible!
