I had a disc replaced at C5-6 back in 2007. I really haven't had much pain with it until an accident this past April which put me in the hospital for several days.
I had CAT scans done of my face and neck in the trauma unit and the MD said my neck looked fine.
However it's been over 2 months now and I'm having constant neck pain and headaches which I rarely experience.
I expected some soreness ( I went face first into a Steele railing), but most everything is healed up except the pain in the neck.
I'm also having extreme pain in my right hand when trying to open jars and just picking thing up. Especially severe when I handle cold items.
Does this merit an MRI? Or is results from the CT scan good enough?
Should I go back to my spine surgeon?
