For over a year I've have most of my neck from the bottom of the chin to just above the top of the sternum, wrap around to the back of my neck (mostly left sided) numb. I know that is from my C3 nerve root, okay, no problem with that. It sort of felt like I was wearing a turtleneck or a snug scarf.
Here is my question. Those of you that have similar symptoms, has yours changed such that be it head position, or when laying down, it feels like someone is putting pressure (like fingers around it) half way down your trachea? I feel it most if my head is slightly down, or turned left or right, and when I lay down - mind you not painful, but very noticeable and annoying at times. I'm too far out of surgery for it to be new scar tissue.
I do have a history of movement in that area, so the other thought I had it might be it is moving more - but my voice though still crappy at times, and still with constant choke outs, have not appreciably changed. I will bring it up to my Neurologist Friday, but thought I'd toss it out here. Thanks in advance for your thoughts. :?
