I have never posted, but have replied to a lot of questions regarding lumbar issues nd fusion. I had my 8 week fusion checkup yesterday and am doing fine.
What I am writing about tonight is a familiar sensation in my right arm from about mid bicept to the tips of my fingers -- you all know the one where your arm is totally asleep and tingly
I have had zero neck pain, and no loss of strength. This has been going on for about 8 months now, but I though it was the way I was sleeping due to the lumbar fusion and nothing possibly related to disks, etc. I'm almost positive it is not stress related or muscular in nature as I am still on my muscle relaxers and pain meds.
I am able to move my neck (slide it bac or forth, left or right) and replicate the sensation when I slide it back... Does this sound like a new location of DDD to anyone?
I am going to get a referral from my surgeon on Monday, but after a recent fusion, I am not really looking forward to a possible similar conversation regarding my neck.
Thanks much for the time,
