Neck Pain and Tingling in Arm and Hand



  • I had a cervical ACDF a few months ago. Since the surgery I have had numbness, weakness, and tingling in my left hand that is getting worse.

    Just had an EMG done and the result is I have a nerve problem in my neck. I go back to the NS soon to see if it is permanent damage from when the disc "let go" which resulted in surgery, or something new.

    in lower back and left leg, plus perphical neuropathy,(spelling isn't the best) but the laser/lllvibrator/
    heat treatment seem to be helping, leg doesn't bother me as much, (left leg) toes still feel as if the
    joints are all wrapped with bandaids, but seem to be working a little,
    Right now theough I have been experiencing pain in my neck but also my right hand seems to falling
    asleep and getting numb, it comes and goes, when my arm is down all the way it seems to pass. lkbut when using the hand, eating, shaving,..etc.. it starts getting numb, Have told my new Doc.
    but he doesn't seem to really want to explain or do anything about it, maybe you can reccomend
    someone new in my area, Santee Ca. (outskirts of San Diego, Ca.)
