I had ACDF surgery 08/07 and have been having complications since Sept 07. I have been to numerous doctors and am having a hard time getting an honest second opinion in the city I live in which is a big city mind you. I have been to my surgeon on numerous occasions, have gotten other opinions outside of hima and every one knows him and won't go against him. I know there is something wrong..I have had this intense burning pain in my neck for too long on the right side and it radiates up into my skull. I also have right arm tingling near elbow.. I have had numerous MRI's and a myelogram, and cat scans...Pre surgery my symptoms were left sided in shoulder and left upper arm and weakness. I am frustrated and want answers. My hands now are turning purple and blue at the fingers and very cold. I also feel like Im in a cold freezer at times. I have seen a few neurologists and a rheumatologist... Oh the rheumatologist says my hands turning purple and blue is related to anxiety.. NOt true.. It even happens in my feet sometimes.. I am in the medical profession as well and I cant believe the care I have recieved. I need to find the best hospital in Houston that deals with neurological issues.. If anyone knows please advise. I appreciate any advice I can get.. THANK YOU
