I had a cervical fusion in 2005 and everything went well C 3 to C5 fused well. At the beginning of summer my neck pain and right collar bone area became Swollen and was very painful with numbness and tingling down my right arm. My doc sent me for injections after the 2nd injection a mri's was ordered. It shows the next two levels herniated and pressing on nerve roots. My neck and shoulders hurt all day and my arm goes numb through out the night. A emg us scheduled for 1/26/15 to confirm or rule out carpal tunnel syndrome too. If I have cts this means I have double crush syndrome because the nerve is being compressed brom both ends, the neck and wrist. I'm on lyrica, flexeral, Xanax, and Percocet to keep me comfortable. Has any one been treated for double crush syndrome ? If so what procedure did you have???
