I had part of C4-5 disk removed back in 1990 and have been pretty much free from those old arm and neck pains for many years. Over the past 2 weeks i've been noticing more neck 'cracking' from time to time and within the past week my left index finger has been aching and sortof 'freezing up' becoming very stiff & sore but only in the morning.

Yesterday my left wrist started hurting very badly out of the blue and lasted for about 30 minutes. Sometimes just reclining watching tv (with my hand behind my head) manages to 'set off' some sharp painful twinges at the base of my neck.

So, are these symptoms of my already bad spine (everywhere) acting up? Anyone have these too?
I'm thinking that my fall on my roof the other week while shoveling off ice & snow (and almost falling off the roof too) might have done some damage, it sure did to my back!



  • It would definitely warrant a visit to the doc if it were up to me. If you have the means to do so, it's better to be safe than sorry.

  • I believe that I will ALWAYS be aware and proactive about any pain involving my spine in the future. I wasn't before and look what happened. Since all this started, I realize how delicate the spine is and how important it is to take care of yourself.

    That being said, I think you need to go to the doctor and get your new pain checked. Like "C" said, better safe than sorry.
