After C-5,6,7 surgery I felt pretty good for about a week then I started having muscle spasms in my back, neck and shoulders the pain was off the chart this went on for over 2 weeks, 3 trips to ER 1 by ambulance. My wife said that I was so bad that I passed out in the ambulance. I asked the Dr. stronger pain meds or something for relief he said I would just have to deal with it after the 3rd trip to the ER the Dr. on duty gave me an RX for valium which made a world of difference but I was still tremendous 9 or 10 for days. I'm now having numbness and pain in both arms and hands also have decreased sensitivity and loss of dexterity. Does anyone else have any of these problem?????
