Has anyone had surgery to fuse C1-C2 due to ligament laxity?

Has anyone experienced tender scalp pain at the top of the back of your head or the tip of your tongue and/or lips going numb from instability at C1-C2?

I greatly appreciate your response.

Thank you,


  • Hey inkfrog,
    Any luck on getting to the bottom of your symptoms? I hope you have found some relief and found a doctor to help!
