Looked around for a recent discussion on this subject, apologize if this is duplicated somewhere else. Had a C4-C7 Fusion done in 2008. Pretty much had a steady diet of pain in neck, shoulders, and sometimes arms since that time. See a pain management specialist since that time, have had a variety of medications, some with more success than others. Also have 3-4 injections annually. Living with chronic pain, as most of you know is not fun at all. Over the past 3 months, have developed a new symptom that do not remember having, especially not every day. That is headaches. Have a headache literally most of the time, ranging from 2-3 at good times, and 7-8 or more on bad times. Have discussed this with GP and PM doctors, after sinus X-rays and some office type tests, they both agree they are from the cervical area. Now, my question and fear is that something else is going on or my conditions have worsened. Had a recent injection (cervical) trying to address the headaches, and while it may be a little better, there are still some tough times. I am due to return to both doctors, and wondering what I should be doing next (MRI, Cat scan, etc.). I have seen a Neurosurgeon over a year ago, and he thought while it is possible to make things better, it also turn out worse. His advice (at that time), was to leave well enough alone. Would love to hear from some of you that have knowledge of this or have had similar experiences. Appreciate any advice you may have.
