I'm being treated for lumbar spine problems, settling on the final details of a discectomy at L5 S1. However, for almost a month now I have pain and stiffness in my neck. The pain seems to run along the side of my cervical spine, radiating into the side of my neck and into my shoulder (right side..opposite side from my back pain). Does anyone have any ideas about what might be causing this? I'm starting to worry that maybe there are disk problems in my cervical spine as well. Thanks for any help you could give.
