ACDF C5-6 PAIN

Started by Smile193 on 10/18/2018 5:13pm

Hello all-
I'm new to the group but have been reading everyone s posts. I has N ACDF 5/6 6 weeks ago. Pre - surgery I had so many headaches/ back pain/ neck pain and lose of the use of my left fingers/ hand/ forearm and upper arm. Not completely but periodically which included severe pain and inability to use arm. It has been 6 weeks post op ( had ACDF anterior with titanium and screws). I am experiencing some intense pain in arm ( especially upper arm, shoulders, neck). My fingers work great now though.
It feels like I would imagine a bolt of electricity would feel if it went threw your arm almost 24/7. The pain throughout my arm into my neck, shoulders, and back is excruciating at times. My arm also cramps up and I often experience twitching randomly in arm and other parts of my body. I'm assuming this is fairly normal. Have any of you experienced this after an ACDF c 5/6?
Any advice or experience would be helpful.
Thank you in advance for sharing your experiences. Donna
