c5/c6 question and concerns

Has anyone had recurring episodes of muscle twitching in the arms, chest, and/or back at 8 months post op ACDF at c5/c6? My spine was compressed for quite some time, just wondering if anyone else found that was their experience. Had x rays last week, disc height, alignment, and bone structure was great. Any help or insight would be great, hopefully it will reduce some of my anxiety.

Thanks, blake

    I also had spinal cord compression at C5/C6 and I am still dealing with the after effects of it. I still get the twitches in my arms, shoulders and chest. I probably am not the example you want to hear though since I am still having ongoing problems. I think it is the nerves repairing or something.
