Neck/back flare up or another pinched nerve??

Started by jw_2017 on 03/15/2017 11:12am

Any of my friends on here have neck/back flare ups? I'm 4 months post acdf c6/7. I see my doc tomorrow.

5 days ago I was trying to close my truck door and the wind kept pulling it back open taking my arm with it. I had my old c6/7 nerve pain come back along with new pain. The new pain is on my forearm and on my thumb area. Driving or being a passenger really aggravates both the old pain and the new pain.

Anyone every have flare ups like this? How long would they last?
Anyone every pinch another nerve and thought it was a flare up?

Im feeling a little nervous here.
