I had an ACDF in June and I irritated mine a couple times over the last year... Just take meds, relax, heat/ice... the usual and STAY CALM! (ITS HARD I KNOW), and just hope for the best. If it keeps up.... Time for another MRI.

Re: Electric Shock Feeling

Coming up on 2 weeks post surgery. Chief complaint was pain in left shoulder/arm radiating down to hand, with numbness and tingling.

Woke up after surgery and numbness/tingling were gone immediately. Dr. said don't be surprised if it comes back temporarily due to nerves healing after being compressed for almost a year.

First week, it came and went intermittently. Coming up on 2nd week, and it seems to be gone (along with the pain).

Sounds like it may be just that, or to be safe maybe get an MRI.
