I had part of C4-5 disk removed back in 1990 and have been pretty much free from those old arm and neck pains for many years. Over the past 2 weeks i've been noticing more neck 'cracking' from time to time and within the past week my left index finger has been aching and sortof 'freezing up' becoming very stiff & sore but only in the morning.
Yesterday my left wrist started hurting very badly out of the blue and lasted for about 30 minutes. Sometimes just reclining watching tv (with my hand behind my head) manages to 'set off' some sharp painful twinges at the base of my neck.
So, are these symptoms of my already bad spine (everywhere) acting up? Anyone have these too?
I'm thinking that my fall on my roof the other week while shoveling off ice & snow (and almost falling off the roof too) might have done some damage, it sure did to my back!
