I need your input on my problem from anyone who can help me. I am one year post op ACDF at C5 C6 for disc herniation that caused stenosis and cervical myelopathy. I had a ACDF at C67 one year prior. I was left with left arm weakness and pain and other assorted issues. I have seen a slow improvement after 6 months of therapy and starting lyrica. My arm is not normal but I have been thankful that I am not left handed. For the past month my right bicep and tricep has started to hurt and the pain is becoming worse not better. So now I have two arms that hurt and I am having trouble using my right arm in addition to my left. I moved up my appt to see my NS because of my symptoms and because I AM TERRIFIED. I am even more hesitant to see this NS because he intimidates me.
Has anyone ever had symptoms in both arms before? I have some slippage or movement at C4 C5(anterolisthesis grade one) which was not there before.
I don't want anymore surgery but would like to rid at least my dominant arm of the pain. Any experience or input/advice on this subject? I am making myself sick thinking about seeing this DR and perhaps more problems. Help!
