I was rear-ended by a drunk driver on New Years' Eve of 2007 sustaining moderate disc herniations at C3-4 and C4-5. After exhausting all non-invasive methods of treatment, I underwent ACDF surgery at C4-5 on June 13th of this year. Prior to the surgery, I had lost almost all ability to use my right arm/hand due to numbness, pain and weakness, and had the same symptoms to a lesser degree on the left. Movements such as brushing my teeth, writing, even washing my hair became unbearable after a minute or so. Since the surgery, I've regained most of the function bilaterally, but am left with odd numbness/tingling almost constantly, bilateral deltoid pain (like somebody has socked me a good one), and progressive weakness in both arms bilaterally. The numbness/tingling becomes extremely bothersome when I'm sleeping. I wake up constantly with numbness and tingling down both arms and into my pinky and ring fingers of both hands. My wrist also feels funny, right worse than left. I'm finding that one way to stop the numbness/tingling is to sleep with my arms above my head (which isn't natural for me). I also still have pain in my neck, but I guess that's to be expected. Does anybody have any ideas, or experience with this?
