I have already made a post about my previous medical history. Long story short, Had a TLIF surgery at L4-L5 three years back and now same surgeon suggests for a ACDF surgery at C4-C5 and
I was diagonised with Cervical disc herniation at C4-C6 levels two years, from then I have been on intermittent pain killer medication, physical therapy. But past two months the pain hasn't responded to any therapy or painkillers.As said earlier my surgeon suggests for a surgery.
But I am not intrested in another surgery not anytime soon. I am able to cope with the pain now a days but there are other symptoms which make me doubt my decision on surgery.
I would like to list my symptoms and I want to know whether these are due to disc herniation and whether I will be relieved, if opt for surgery.The symptoms are,
1. Persitent tingling at tip of the tongue.
2. Involuntary movement of right hand and fingers.
3. Hoarse voice ( this happened just a day back after I took pain killer).
Along with these other symptoms like pain in neck, pain radiating to shoulder blades and arms, dizziness, a feeling of instability in both the legs.
I dont know why these are happening all of a sudden and I cant come to a conclusion what is causing these.
Kindly help me out!!!
P.S: Asked my surgeon about these symptoms and he said my herniated wont be cauing these symptoms.
