Hi everyone, I am currently waiting to have a lumbar fusion
done. The pain and various other symptoms have been progressing with my lumbar issues.
I have been noticing other problems and am now thinking they may have something to do with my neck, but am not sure.
I am on ms contin and percocett for my lumbar issues, however I find that whenever I am dressing for the day when I raise my arms up to put a sports bra or tank top over my head, I have a terrible pain in my upper arms (bicep, area ) Since I am already on meds, I think this is cause for concern. Today I noticed that my thumbs on both hands are completely numb. I know that I can't ask for medical advise, but do you think that I should ask my doctor about this, sooner rather than later (after lumbar surgery)?
Thanks and hope that everyone is having a relatively pain free day.
