Pain under base of skull-back of head-post 2 level ACDF 8 months
I was wondering if someone has similar experiences as me. I had C5/6 and C6/7 done in early Jan 2013. I have been experiencing headaches or tightness pain in the back of my head at the base of the skull, especially on the left side. I have done a dozen PT sessions, along with weekly trigger point massages. I even got a shot of Prednisone from my ortho in mid-July. Any chance these pains dissipate? I had the exact pain for months prior to surgery and expected it would go away post surgery. I do take magnesium and 10mg of Flexeril at night, which seems to help. Biofreeze also works decently. I'm starting to wonder if I have another unrelated condition, as the pain is in another area away from where the fusion took place. I feel depressed that I'm going to have to live this way for the rest of my life. I just turned 40 and didn't expect to have my life be like this. Wondering if I should go get another MRI or CAT scan post surgery to see where the problem may exist. I had an xray done at 4 months from my ortho and he said I was starting to fuse. I did wear that bone-stimulation device for 4 months religiously.
Any advice on where to turn????
