I had my colarbone broken 15 years ago and after a screw was inserted, 2 weeks after surgery I started getting pain on the crown of my head. This was from a bicycle fall where a hospital failed to see I had a hairline fracture in my right colarbone. Since then I returned to the doctors complaining of pain in my right colarbone and doctor suggested taking the screw out after 9 years of being in there. It took them about 2 or 2 1/2 hours to do that and then I started noticing that the sleeve of my coat was short on one side. I then realized my right arm was longer than my left arm. I returned to the same doctor and he said that I needed my ligaments tightened. I went to get another surgery done to tighten my ligaments which he said may or may not work. I could swear my neck headaches got better after the surgery. Only I started to get chronic headaches again and not only that, the area where I broke it caved-in after they took the screw out and I keep trying to raise my shoulder all the time. Where my shoulder is caved-in, I get nerve pinching at the site. When I get throbbing in my spine, it goes down my right arm too. I also have a hernia in C3 which a ortho doctor said is impinging on my spinal cord and I have bone spurs too. I have a degeneration at C7. I have arm weakness, and nerve pain down both arms, shoulder pain, tightness in my neck going under my scalp into my brain. After 2 hours of waking up my headaches return...and they are constant. I've been living like this for 14 years and I've been going to neurosurgeon and they say my problem is not bad. I get so bad with the throbbing in my spine and right arm that I feel like I'm not going to make it to see tomorrow.
I just got new MRI of Brain, caratoids in neck and Brain, neck MRI and lumbar. Next I'm going to see a neurologist for emg studies and eeg...I think. These are painful and have had them before but I don't want to go for neck surgery and the doctor only takes care of 1/2 the problem. I think I really should have another MRI done of my right shoulder because my clavicle is caving in and my back bone (the wing) is protruding and I get pain in my back. I'm a total mess! I was thinking of going to those hospitals in Manhatten that take care of cases where all doctors have denied them of help! I can't live with this pain and agony anymore!
Anyone have any other ideas?
