The c6-c7 disc is 6th cervical disc near the lower part of the neck, near the top of the shoulders.
The nerve root that would be affected by the c6-c7 disc herniation controls the arms, the shoulders, the heart, the lungs, and more. When a C6-C7 herniated disc occurs and the c6-c7 nerve root is irritated, the symptoms usually include neck pain and pain in the arms, weakness in the hands and weakness in the arms, shoulder pain, chest pains, uncontrollable sweating, headaches, and possibly more. Many times, this condition can be misdiagnosed.
As with any other herniated disc, a c6-c7 herniation is very painful and uncomfortable. The pain, tingling, numbness and weakness in the shoulders, arms and even hands and fingers could all point to this condition.
