I was in a car accident and have a herniated disc between C5-C6 and tore my rotator cuff. I have had 2 shoulder surgeries to repair my shoulder. My surgeon says my pain is from my neck and my pain management dr says he doesn’t think it is from my neck.
My question is this does anyone else have pain and burning radiating down their arm from their neck injury? I've tried everything possible pain meds (soma, Percocet, celebrex, and advil), acupuncture, 12 injections in my shoulder/arm for muscle spasms I keep getting, I've had the test to check for nerve damage came back as normal, TENS unit and PT. Nothing seems to help. I really want to find away to get off the pain meds but I am in pain daily. When I try to not take anything I’m in so much pain I feel sick.
Does anyone else have these symptoms and have a suggestion as what I could try next?
