Hello, about a year ago I had a laminectomy on C3-C6 to remove a tumor that was growing inside my spinal column. Everything went well and the tumor was benign, I recovered rather quickly resuming all my normal activities within 3 months.
My problem is I get a strange feeling in my neck, arms and legs when someone either greets me with a strong hug around my neck or slaps me on the back at the base of my neck. It does not hurt as much as it makes me feel vulnerable and weak in the arms. Almost like an electric feeling...
It's very uncomfortable and has made me drop a few drinks when surprised with a slap on the back.
Just wondering if this is to be expected, my neurosurgeon has left my hospital so I haven't been able to ask them. Has anyone had similar problems post-laminectomy?
