New to this part of forum. As many of you know, I've had ADR L4-L5 and ALIF L5-S1. The past year I've been experiencing strange symptoms, Pain and numbness in shoulders, arms and hands and generally not feeling well. Some days my hands hurt so bad I can hardly use them. Went to doc because I have history of Lupus and RA in my family. Doc says all tests came back normal which frustrated me to no end. My daughter brought up the fact that this pain could be related to my back. Hello, light went off!!! I have been experiencing a lot of tightness and pain in upper back but it never occurred to me that this could be related. Going to run by doc and see what he says.What do you think?
