Hello, 37 years ago at age 16 I had a c3/c3 cervical fusion done following a motorbike accident.
For years everything was OK.
I stayed away from parachuting and gave up the sports I used to play. At the time I was warned that by the time I was in my 50's I might find that I was having problems due to nerve damage.
Recently I have started to have numbness in one of my fingers, now spreading to the adjacent finger. The symptoms are exactly the ones that caused me to go to the doctor about my broken neck all those years ago and resulted in my post haste admittance to hospital for treatment.
An additional datapoint, while I suffered no noticeable injuries I did have an accident in my car a few months ago. I skidded off a road and into a shallow ditch in snow. I drove the car away and apart from shock I had no issues at the time.
What is the opinion of people here. Should I hie myself off to a doctor immediately or is this just a thing that happens to old folks?
