I am 45 yrs old and I had c4c5 neck surgery in 2006 and had ok success for about 6 yrs then my neck and shoulder muscles started to become so tight that I am just miserable most of the time! It was explained to me by my sergion that the muscles were working harder because they were detecting a foreign object (the metal plate) and the muscles were working against it. I later had another mri and found out I have two more herniated disk, one above the plate and one below the plate which was explained to me by my pain management that my neck was having to to work harder because of the previous surgery. Since about 2011 I have been so miserable with the muscles tightness in my neck and shoulders and I have been to pt, I have done trigger points, done steroid injections, pain blocks, tens unit, and I am in pain management and none of it has seem to help much except trigger points if they are done right. I’m so scared to have surgery again but as of now I am so miserable, I just don’t know what else to do!
