    Cervical herniated disc

    I think I may have a herniated disc at C5, C6. Not only is it because I have an ache in the side of my neck but because my left lat gets tingling sensation in it every so often (I looked it up, at these levels the nerves innervate that muscle).

    My question is, has anyone experienced this and seen a doctor? I have a feeling that they're not going to be able to do anything except surgery.... and I'm only 22.... so I'm not going to be having surgery. And I'm not even sure herniated discs are treated via surgery, I think it's very rare. Any thoughts?
