1 year post ACDF and more potential problems

So the last couple weeks I'm getting pain back in the arm and seemingly at the base of the neck....more pronounced in the upper arm. I had this prior to getting ACDF done on C5/C6 and C6/C7 in Jan 2013. The arm pain went away and now it's reared it's ugly head. I talked to my physiatrist who is already treating me for my wonderful cervical headaches and he feels the C7/T1 disc may be the problem.........does C7/T1 cause arm pain...or is it something else. Can it be a bone spur growing in one of the areas I had replaced.....so soon after last year's surgery? Thoughts?
