... Thank you for the well wishes! It sounds like you have been through quite a journey yourself. Good luck with your next journey, but I would think, based on what research I have done and what my Chiropractor has been able to help educate me with, it sounds much like my issues and they are honing in on C3-4. I have numbness in my thumb, index and middle finger with some on... (7 replies)

... I went to see the neurosurgeon that did my last surgery after my PcP had an MRI done on me. I had complained to him earlier and kept saying the nerves can take a year to settle down.

... I was a passenger in a severe car accident about 5 months ago, which I thought I was going to fully recover from without any issue. Last month, I bent down and felt something pop in my neck and immediately felt like there was a knife in the back of my neck. The pain was excruciating and sharp in the base of my neck and through my right shoulder blade area. I could barely... (16 replies)
... I am so thankful that I found this message board! To give a brief (ish) history, I have had neck fatigue and pain leading to daily headaches for 10+ years.

First one in 1978 - I was only 18, got thrown around a lot in the inside of the car and pretty much walked away unscathed from a serious... (3 replies)
... Hello everyone, I am new to healthboards but I have gotten a lot of reading posts over the past couple of weeks. I have a question for people who have had their symptoms return after surgery. Basically, if 4 ESI's haven't helped, what about facet injections? to get there, I need to give my history. My situation: I am 33 years old and trying to practice law but experiencing... (2 replies)

... I suffered herniated discs on C4,C5,C6,C7, and L5 due to being rear ended in a car accident on 8/23/03. I suffered also carpal tunnel syndrome. I will be receiving ACDF C6/C7 w/ bone graft from my hip. I am not afraid of the surgery but the anticipation of the surgery I feel is the worst part.

... Five plates in a span of 7-8 discs is a lot.... I would tend to think that a lot of her pain could be from little to no ROM(range of motion). Think about it if she was trying to turn her head & her C1-C2-C3-C4-C5-C6-C7 was totally fused then that would be a huge fight going on there. I had a 4 level ACDF done & had 2 plates installed. I also had also had a Corpectomy/PCDF... (3 replies)
