This morning when the house was still and I turned my head from left to right I hear a metal clicking in my neck, what's with that? On 12/8/08 I had C4-7 anterior cervical diskectomy, fusion, partial corpectomy & instrumentation with a plate, cage and 8 screws.
March I started to have new pain on right side of neck with tingling down back of neck and pain in right arm. After months of pills, pt, shots, none of which has helped me. I get to see a new surgeon this week on the 10th.
I was told my neck is fully fused but it it normal to hear a metal clicking? My pain level is a consent 7-8 the pills are no help and laying down makes it the worse.


  • It's hard to say what is causing that. It's good that you see your surgeon on Thursday. Hopefully he will have some xrays taken to check that your hardware is still intact.
