cervical spine symptoms

I,ve had CFIDS for 17 years. Have also had progressing neck issues this whole time. I've learned to manage my triggers for CFIDS and am doing well on that front.( I believe, from the years of managing the CFS that a lot of the CFS is caused from the c spine issues.) I've had to curtail most exercise and activities, that I enjoy that place any stress on C spine. No biking, movie theaters(any activity that requires looking up), swimming except for back stroke or side stroke. Lately I have had increased brain fog,( worse ever) tingling, burning including whole scalp area, neck and down back. If I had not already experienced some of this in the past I would have gone to the ER with this last episode.

I just made an appoint to discuss having full workup with my GP. Will be asking for major center, probably Boston. I've thought, what if I need some other surgery and the position for intubation causes some permanent damage? The time has come to find out just where I'm at, and look at most responsible choices. I have 2 young grandchildren with one on the way, and so much want to be a "whole" for them.

Have any of you had similar experiences and have any suggestions or helps for working with the medical community?

thank you :)
