HI, Im Tammy :)

Hey there, my name is Tammy and I just found this site. I had surgery on my C5/6&7 June 2005. Started with the pain again a little over a year ago. Same issues but the docs say everything is in tact from my surgery. My pain level reaches well above the "10" almost daily :( I am hoping to find some good advice/information and get to know some of you.



  • Welcome to spine health, though sorry that your pain brought you here. It can be hard when doctors tell us that everything is okay, when your pain and weakness tell you it is not. I saw on your other post that you had an mri and an emg. Did the doctor explain the results of the tests to you?

    Please don't give up looking for answers. If you don't have copies of your test results, try to get them. Can you get in to see another fellowship trained orthopedic or neurosurgeon for another opinion? Have they sent you for physio, tried different meds, heat/ice/tens?
