Hi, I am new here to this site. I had ACDF to C3-C4 and C4-C5 on 9/30/14. My concern is that i experience horrific pressure/pain all the way across my throcic/scapulas and in shoulders with weather change. I do not have to be doing anything for this pain to skyrocket. Especially with cold weather. Is this something that i will have to endure for life or will this ease at all over time? Nothing seems to help. It gets so bad that i feel like i am going to crawl out of my skin. The pressure eventually extends into my face, head, and arms. I become hypersensitive to everything at this point and can not even stand so much to feel a necklace on my neck. Does anyone experience this and can anyone tell me what has helped with this? It truly feels like my chest, thoracic, scapula and shoulder area are going to combust! Driving also seems to increase pain/pressure.
Thanks and i pray for less pain for everyone!
