I had ACDF C5-C6, C6-C7 surgery 5 months ago which had been compressing my spinal cord, worked but have since developed several problems. (Vertigo, occipital dizziness and headaches, tight and painful muscles going from my shoulders to my neck on both sides but more severe on the right side and now to top it all off I now have pain in my right shoulder going down my deltoid. NS sent me to PT, and had to follow-up with an ENT and both referred me back to NS since there were not able to do anything more for me. Waiting to see NS, PT suggested I see and Ortho who ordered an MRI which showed a small labrum tear, but not the cause on my pain. Ortho has given cortisone shots to ease should joint with no results. Advised to see NS and Ortho believes the symptoms are coming from my neck. All of the Pt, exercises, anti-inflammatories, ice/heat packs, not able to drive and haven't been released to go back to work and still have daily headaches (from moderate to severe, which send me to my room) dizziness on a daily basis and pain. Taking an average of 2-3 Utram daily which I don't like to take anything if I can avoid.
Has anyone had the same type of symptoms with their surgeries and what has worked to give relief to you. I am looking for the end of the rainbow and need help to find it.
