I have been dealing with Neck and shoulder pain for approximately 4 yrs. now. I was dealing with it and it got worse last summer. I started to go down hill with leg pain, clumsiness, arm weakness and pain, headaches. Last summer I finally got a diagnosis of having a herniated disc at C5/C6 with spinal compression and myelopathy. I had acdf surgery in September. Shortly after the surgery I started getting awful headaches in October for a month straight. The doctor put me on gabapentin, and cyclobenzaprine at regular doses and I started PT. I have also seen a neurologist to help control the headaches. I was started on nortriptyline and a rescue drug for cervicogenic headaches with migraine characteristics. All this has been helping until this last week. The pain is all back with a vengeance all the sudden. I haven't changed anything or had any accidents to have all of this pain coming back like this. I am totally confused about what is happening with me. I thought things were getting better. I was hoping I was moving in the right direction. Anyone else go through this?
