C4/C5 Neck Injury & Fusion

Started by Jani on 03/09/2016 9:32am

I fractured my C4/C5 neck vertebrae in a car accident and a fusion procedure was successfully performed 16 months ago. After the initial neck brace stage of 6 weeks, my recovery was pretty amazing. I have however been experiencing severe shoulder blade muscle pains that extends to my collar bone on my left side lately. This condition started roughly a week ago and seems to persist. I have tried heat packs and mild muscle relaxers. Is this normal? I drive a lot as I am a consultant and also do quite a lot of computer work. I have slight numbness in my left thumb and upper, outer arm on my left side from time to time.
