Pressure In the top of my head and cervical discs

Has anyone had pressure in the top of their head and bad headaches that have been solved by neck surgery . I have 4 bulging discs c/3-C/7 as well as spinal stenosis. I also have 1 completely degenerate disc , L4 and two herniated L5 and L3 in my lumbar which cause pain. The horrible pressure in the top of my head, , headache & burning nerve pain that goes into my chest and down my arms and spine is made worse by lying down. I will not have a fusion as from the research I have done once u have one of more than two levels you spend the rest of ur life having one surgery after another with diminishing results. Please if u have any info I would appreciate it . I have been dealing with this for 4 yrs. I do get some relief with cortisone shots at C,7, for which I am very grateful but wondering if a laminactomy for the stenosis and a discectomy for the disc might give me permanent relief of some sort . Thank u! Lisa
