Burning neck pain

After an MRI, CT Myelogram, and CT head scan over the past 2 years, I have yet to find out why I have had a burning sensation in the left rear of my neck. When I raise my eyebrows, I can also feel a "pulling" sensation that radiates around the back side of my left ear, my left temple area, as well as the left half of my scalp. Has anyone ever experienced this? I just had an anterior cervical fusion done on C6/C7 area and I am currently in a cervical collar. The surgeon said this surgery was not related to the feeling I've been having in the neck/head area.


  • i used to have the same sensations. :/ i had fusion work in the lower two cervical and upper two thoracic vertebrae. i had those sensations for years. :/ they are now gone. i guess what the surgeon told you is correct. its nothing to worry about. :-C i've had many spinal surgeries and after the surgeries there would be new tingling on the skin. these sensation are not indicative of major problems.
    so relax.... ;) all is well. in time they will disappear! ;)
  • Hi mister, Pete is right, I have had 3 spine surgeries and the burning paid stayed a while after operation. One of your nerves has some fluid from surgery or inflamamation on it and thats why you have the burning pain. I just had my post op and was told I could start up my anti inflams again, since then the burning has eased up. You have to wait until fusion is complete before you can take anti inflams or the fusion wont fuse. Be patient. a fusion takes a while to heal. :)
