I am 4+ months post ACDF C5/7 and have had that same weird nerve pain now starting on the opposite side from before I had the surgery. It has been 3 days of it, and as we all know with nerve pain, it just hurts nonstop -- burning right shoulder, down the right arm, etc. I take Neurontin and Tylenol but nothing else. Is this common after so long? I've had a very fine recovery, all pain gone from the left side, lost weight, exercise by walking. My next dr's appt is at least a month away. I've been kind of hoping it just goes away . . . any advice is appreciated.
