I searched the posts and did not see the symptoms I am having. I had a 2 level ACDF (c5, c6, c7) on November 30, 2006. Everything progressed fine. I do not have the numbness and pain in my left arm any more. Starting around March/April time frame I started with itching deep in the muscles of my neck and shoulder. There is electricity feeling all over my back sometimes. My neck muscle from behind the ear to the shoulder is always very tight and knotty and painful. I have used ice for months, heat makes it flare. The neurosurgeon's assistant said he hears this symptom about 2 to 3 times a year. Apparently there is not a whole lot that can be done. I have been in physical therapy and it seems to be finally making some progress. (I finally found a physical therapist who really makes me work out with excercises and does deep massage). The knot in my neck scares the physical therapist. Anyway, I mainly would like to know if anyone has ever had this deep itching/electrical feeling. I tried Lyrica, it just makes the electrical feeling worse. Thanks.
