Does anyone have a clicking sound in their neck after cervical fusion? I had a two level anterior fusion 18 months ago C4-C6 and also a lumbar fusion six months ago L4-L5. For the past two months, every time I look to the left or right for a few moments and then turn my head back to the straight position, I hear a click in the back of my neck. Sometimes it's a snap like a rubber band but mostly a click. There is some pain with the snap but only as long as the snap lasts. The back of my neck has also become sore, just a tired feeling, like I want to lay back and take the weight off of it.
I called my doc and he is sending me for xrays. But I'm just nervous and worried something may be slipping with the screws or plate. So, has anyone else had this and what was the outcome?
