Just joined - great site by the way. Helps our mental state I think to talk with "real people." I had ACD w/fusion 3 months ago - C5-C7 area. Surgery ok - no biggie. Still low neck mobility and into the shoulder - no change on that. Still some numbing down arm. Was told shoulder was separate issue and need scope on that too. But the constant migraine feel in back of neck and low skull is really bad EVERYDAY. Does the mobility get any better on the turning point of things in time? Any ideas on what to do with that? I have had migraines for 35 years but not the same as these. I feel constrant strain on this area... any known exercise for this that is safe? I had to stop yoga. Had to stop life in general really - it seems. I also have stenosis, early degen disease and sciatica. Anyone else out there this way - I am 49 - feel 60. Do you ever feel like the DRs make you out to be a drug addict for asking for pain meds? I am getting so tired of being insulted. Phys Therapy made me worse so I had to quit. Yoga was useless- so limited. I cant afford massages - and losing my insurance next year. I would appreciate any suggestions on pain meds and/or any alternatives that I could try. Thanks and good luck to all of us in this boat!
