I had surgery about 4 years ago and have been fine. For the last couple eeks I have been uncomfortable. This morning I woke up in great pain. I went to the emergency room. My pain is unbearable unless I keep my chin tucked in tight or my arm over my head. Also I feel tingling in my fingers. I have Oxycodone and flexeril which only help minimally. I call a surgeon tomorrow who will probably schedule an MRI. I can't stay still enough to do it. Can they knock me out for it? I went from fine 2 weeks ago to huge pain today. Has anyone alse had this happen this quickly?
