I had ACDF c5-6 08/08/08. That is more thatn a year ago. I have complained since day one. Something is not right. Now my neck seems to "freeze" where it is almost impossible for me to turn. Then I get a severe bout of dizziness & almost nausea like.
I have been seeing a new PM for the past 2 months. I have been rx'd ms contin 15 2 x per day & percoset 5/325 3 x per day. I am feeling that this is not enough to keep the pain at bay. I get very sharp neck pains arm pains & the back of my head. It just doesn't quit.
I have seen 2 other surgeons. They have said that surgery wasnot an option until my symptoms progress. How progressed must they be? I feel like nobody believes me since I have had the same complaint since surgery.
Do I look for another Dr. again? Do I ask my new PM for different meds? I must work & now have to work no less than 10 hour days through the end of the year.
Any advice or suggestions are welcoming.
