Ok so me, Im 20 yrs old and in april I started having really back neck pains and shoulder pains. After a month It was discovered I have a Congenital reversal of the cervical facet joint in the C6 Vertebrae. Basically it is missing a pedical and some other things.
My nuerosurgeon guy said its EXTREMELY rare, he couldnt really find much about it so its taken a while to work out what to do with me.
I had needles in my neck (OWWW) and MRI's and finally he has decideded to fuse the joint to try and unsquash the nerve thats causing the pain in my shoulder.
So its happening in the next few weeks (dont have a date yet) and Im a little scared about pain and the risks. Im also a little freaked that Ill be in a brace for 6 weeks after. I guess I'm just freaked in general.
Sorry this is soo long :O)
