neck and arm pain
I am a 42 year old male who had a on the job injury that resulted in a cervical spine fusion because of severe neck on the left side and shoulder pain with loss of felling in the left hand and severe arm pain. i underwent on efusion surgery in 2001 from c-5 to c-7. after 18 months i was still in pain and after complaining long enough they figured out my fusion did not take at the c-6 to c-7 level and i underwent a second surgery to refuse that level.. the end result fixed the disc problem but i still had pain which i have been treating with pain medication for 7 years now... in january of this year i started experiencing the same arm pain and shoulder pain all over again only this time worse.. i now have pain all the way across both shoulders and now have pain running down into the right arm as well and the pain is as intense as it was after thye surgeries.. i had a emg which reveals carpultunnel syndrome, and a xray and catscan that shows the past fusion is intact and there are no major herniated discs below or above the fusion but i am up 8 perkasets a day at 5mg-325mg apap as well as nortriptalene for nerve pain and it is not even touching the pain... WHAT SHOULD I DO??????
