Some bleeding would be perfectly normal but a lack of bleeding would be even better. What you're looking for this for a return of your normal menstrual cycle during the following month.

Tough : Myofascial pain is tough to treat and is all about maintenance. Good manual physical therapy within myofascial release is key. Cervical spondylosis is common as we age. Hopefully your pain management provider has offered or done some diagnostic blocks to help identify your pain. Ablation therapies could possibly help. Opioids are not very effective for myofascial pain.

Nerves are pinched: Thoracic outlet is the result of the big nerves and blood vessels in the neck and chest being pinched by the muscles and bones at the top of the rib cage as they exit towards the arms.

What are the symptoms of having cervical radiculopathy and complex regional pain syndrome? Please help symptoms I have are burning and pins and needle

Focal vs diffuse: Radiculopathy is a pinched nerve in the spine and makes very specific symptoms in a specific dermatomal pattern. Crps affects a broader area such as an entire limb or two limbs, may have some of the same neurological symptoms of a radiculopathy, but also has sympathetic nervous system symptoms of color changes, swelling, and temperature changes. See your doctor if you think you have either.

My sis 24old has peutz-jeghers syndrome, she has to do pep-test but she is virgin,is there other way to check the cervix? blood or urine test? or MRI?

Pap options: Your sister is at VERY low risk for cervical disease, but PJ syndrome can have other neoplastic manifestations in the ovaries and bowel, so if the intent is to screen for those, then US, colonoscopy and other approaches are available. But pelvic exam is the low cost way to screen for ovarian enlargement.

No- epidural steroid: Injection is not a diagnostic test but a treatment . You need to have a physician who is knowledgable about both conditions evaluate you and the appropriate studies for both regions and determine the exact cause or causes of your symptoms. An orthopedic surgeon may be a good specialist to choose.

Could laser ablation of the cervix cause toxic shock syndrome? Would a sunburn like rash on the hips be indicative of tss?

Could laser ablation of the cervix cause toxic shock syndrome?  Would a sunburn like rash on the hips be indicative of tss?

Possible?: It's theoretically possible but i haven't heard of any such cases and wasn't able to find any case reports. A flat rash on some part of the body can be seen with tss but it's not common. If you're not feeling well and suspect you may have tss, it's best to go to an emergency room immediately.
