SEVERE PAIN......2 years post ACDF 5-7, and last night during the night, I woke with severe pain in my neck. I cannot turn my head either way, cannot tilt it back, and cannot look down! It is scaring me that something is seriously wrong. I am freaking out. What could be wrong? My doctor's office does not open for 10 more minutes. I do not want another MRI, but I think I may need one. If anyone has had this before or thinks they know what it could be, please let me know.
I also had two laminectomies prior to the fusion. Thank you for any help you may offer.
