Re: Upper back pain
Jan 10, 2002

I too have had lumbar surgery, two in fact, and an ACF at C6-7. With the cervical area my arms were as you described. I now have problems from C4-C7. We had hoped for carpal tunnel this time but no such luck...The tests described in the previous post along with an MRI determined this. Any way, my chest feels tight and constricted too, Dr. says it is the muscle spasms that are associated with the disc trouble. I wouldn't lift anything if it hurts to do so, I can't even pick up a plate without feeling pressure. Also when I lay down my arms and hands really hurt more, and get really cold, doesn't matter what position I'm in. Also my neck and head are numb alot, especiall if I over do things, ie do anything! I don't know if this helps u any, hope so...

Good luck! Kelley
