I didn't know what other forum to post this in. Also, please disreagrd my typos. Left hand is not what it used to be (and I work ona computer all day!)so my typing pretty much sucks now.
Oct 2009 - I had an Anterior Corpectomy with fusion C4-T2 and a Posterior Laminectomy with Instrumentation C3-T2. Recovery went great even went back to work 1 1/2yrs later. After working a month or two, numbness in left hand and arm came back only the ring finger and pinky. Index finger nerve damage - can't straighten it- can live with that -NS told me the surgery will help 40% - 60% and I will never be back to where I was, but I won't lose full use of my left hand again. Pain and numbness actually went away for a while. Now Having pain on and off in left and right arms and hands - have to work because my husband lost his job and is going to retire.
Anyway, I take a lot of meds - anti depressants especially anti depressanes - one of the side effects is shaking. My left hand and arm have been shaking (tremors) for a while now, and, when I am tired, my right arm and hand shake a little too. Saw a doctor about my anti depressant meds and she noticed the tremors. Right away she said it is more than a medication side effect call your NS. Sometimes when I am sitting and I put my feet so they are resting on the toes, my legs will shake too.It is a new symptom, but I am not convinced it is from my neck. Has anyone else experience this?
The last time I saw my NS, when I would get severe pain in my hands and elbows almost 1 yr after the surgery, he wanted me to go to a rheumatologist to rule out arthritis and to come back if it isn't that. Never went - I knew it wasn't arthritis. Thankfully the pain stopped on its own
Anyway, didn't mean to make this so long. Just want to know if anyone else has or had tremors and was told it is from the problems with the neck.
Thanks for listening! (reading..)
