Neck, Back pain,Shoulder, back of head pain, On Rt Side

Started by 102079557086774... on 08/28/2015 5:17pm

My story began in November 2014...
I'm not sure what I did but I woke up with a stiff neck....long story short. CERVICAL RADICULOPATHY, After 8 months I was convinced to have the cervical epidural as a posed to surgery. 3 weeks later I notice a stiff neck again but different than last time. I was showering when I felt something pop.... and was trying to get out of the tub, alone. It actually scared me (which is not easy to do). I went to the Be E R. Where the Doctor was afraid to touch me. I felt as though my head would fall off if there was nothing to keep it up.I could not hold my own head up..comthe pain is unbearable. I am waiting for my appointment now on 9/3/15....Any ideas or Advice?

I would definitely see a Spine specialist Asap You'll need an MRI for a diagnosis But once Nerves are permanently damaged ,well it gets worse

I just read your post of one week ago and since it is past 9/3/15 and you were to have an appointment with your doctor---how are you? What were the results. I could read and feel the pain you are experiencing. Hope you are ok.

How did things go after your appointment on 9/3? I am interested in knowing. Don't mess around with your neck! At 51, I have suffered greatly with neck problems. After a C1-C2 neck fusion 20 years ago, I am now faced with the long term post surgical problems. I now need neck surgery to includeC2-T2, maybe T4! Avoid surgery at all costs! I don't like that popping sound you wrote about, especially if it happened while you were looking up at the ceiling, like washing or rinsing your hair in the shower. I herniated a disk,in my already fragile neck, while doing neck stretching exercises! Be advised, never push your head while stretching, like trying to stretch further! Only stretch your neck as far as you can just turning your neck. Also once you have neck injuries or problems try to avoid looking up. Wash your hair over your head etc. These types of changes will help you avoid further injuries. Good luck! I look forward to hearing how your appointment went!
