ACF c-5-c-7 4 yrs ago, now having new pain
Had a cervical fusion 4 years ago c-5-c-7. A while back my neck really started hurting. I had a doctor do an x-ray and said that I had stage 3-4 DDD and that it looked like T-1 was really starting to look bad. Stupid me, I ignored it. Now, I am having pain right in the middle of my neck down to the middle of my shoulder blades. Once again my neck, face, arms and hands are tingling and fingers going numb. It gets a lot worse when I lay down and my neck isn't straight with my back. I am freaking out. When this happened 4 years ago, I didn't start getting symptoms until about a month before my surgery. After my surgery, my NS said I was lucky.... the spinal cord was so bad that I would have been paralyzed within a month...Going crazy now...Waiting for a call back from the office.
