Sharp eye pain and head pain.
A year ago I had my C6/C7 disc removed after a herniation. A few months ago I started having neck pain again but it seemed different...different pain, different location, but I still thought it was my cervical spine.
My surgeon (same one who performed my surgery) sent me for a CT Myleogram. I have gone through the gammet of all the tests already and told him to just get to the meat and send me on to get the yes/no test done so I can put my mind at rest that I won't need surgery again.
The Myleogram showed nothing and showed a very well healing fusion.
I tried to tell him the pain is "different" but I don't think he listened too well. So here I am asking all of you this:
I am on no precription meds, only Advil for pain. I get a sharp pain behind my left eye to the point where it won't open all the way and get sharp, sharp pains up the left side of my skull and my left arm goes numb (which it would before with prior disc issues) then my fingers curl up and I can't use them.
Does anyone know if this is associated with a particular disc or injury of any sort that I am not aware of? The Advil is not keeping up with my pain and I already am probably taking unsafe doseages of it. I am trying to not take prescription pain medications but I am well on my way to NOT being able to tolerate the pain!
