about four months ago i fell of a horse and broke my neck at c7/T1. I ended up with a plate in the front of my neck and eight screws in the back and I am fused from C5 to T2. I just last week was able to take off my neck brace. I still have numbness in both hands on pinky and ring fingers..I also shattered my wrist and have a plate ...
I am still not driving as I can not turn my head. I have fouund sleeping with out the neck brace to be really painful after a few hours so i have to put it on for support.
When i first fell my left leg went numb compeletly and they way I broke my neck they are surprised I did not end up paralyzed
Last night in bed I started having muscular twiches in my legs, gluetes etc and my right ankle had tremendous pain like i rolled it and was having pin and needles in my feet.
