I had my PLIF done in my lumbar area in May and it is fused completely! Now, a new set of problems. Somewhere in my cervical area there is a kink. The doctor could not see anything on the xray, other than to say I have localized kyphosis b/t C5-C6. He gave me prednisone (which I hate) and some Tylenol 3's and said to see him in two weeks. I am a few days into the treatment and already, it is getting worse. My neck is killing me. If I turn my head suddenly, I get a sharp pain up into my skull and my left arm goes numb. I keep getting headaches and It feels like there is a knot in my neck around c3-c4. I have lumbar stenosis already. Does this sound maybe like a herniated disk? Or maybe Cervical Stenosis? The only thing I can think of is maybe a disk is herniated to the side? Anyways, If anyone else is having symptoms like this, please let me know what treatment you are receiving. Thanks!
