After 10 years of dealing with migranes, pain, numbness, etc, I had cervical spinal fusion 3 weeks ago. Before the fusion the migranes got so bad I had to go into urgent care and get injections every 4-5 days. I also went on Lyrica for the facial pain/numbness I had which my surgeon didn't think was related to my discs. That helped and I really thought about not going through the surgery.
Well I did, now the numbness in ear, pain in one side of my face is back and I am on 2 Lyrica a day, which are helping but still not that much.
I fear the worst, a brain tumor?? I have such tight muscles in my neck and back that my husband puts icy hot on them 2 times a day. I went back to work after 2 weeks (probably shouldn't have) but I am quite miserable. I feel like I am having a hard time functioning and worried about everything. Has anyone else experience this facial pain, numbness?
