Unrelenting pain above C5 after fusion of C5-C7 13 years ago. Can anyone offer hope?

Can anyone offer hope? I cannot sleep and cognitive ability is compromised. Thank you.

Hi, Karen, have you had an MRI done lately? Thirteen years has been a very long time since your fusion ... there is a higher risk of problems above and below a prior fusion. Did you have it done for degenerative disc disease? If so, perhaps this is a progression of this condition or maybe a totally different issue. There’s no way to know what you may be dealing without a re-evaluation.

Laser treatments (class 4) helped my terrible neck pain VERY much although I dont have a fusion :/
