I am 30 years old and hurt my neck 3 years ago falling down a flight of stairs. In August 2011 I had no choice but to have an ACDF C4/C5 because I have tried pretty much everything (epidurals, physical therapy, acupuncture, Celebrex, naproxen (anti-inflammatory), Lyrica (Nerve damage medicine) with no relief. After my surgery I had nerve relief but found that I felt just as bad or possibly even worse from the arthritis but I lived with it and tried not to complain.
About a month ago I started having new nerve pain, so I went back to my surgeon and had an MRI which shows that I now have C6 herniation. I would just like to know if anyone can offer any advice or if anyone knows of any type of relief? I feel like it is now controlling my life and is a vicious cycle.
Any advice offered would be genuinely appreciated!!!
