I have had two spinal fusions C3-5 in 2013 and C5-6 in 2015. People hear were great with their support and suggestions. After my 2nd surgery I retired from teaching due to lack of stamina of keeping of with the changing tides of education. After spending 5 wonderful weeks in Germany with my grandchildren at Christmas I showed signs of possible dementia stroke. Quite a battery of tests and workups....SEVERE ATYPICAL MIGRAINES. Now well under control. Okay moving to June a freaky lawn chair accident caused me to roll backwards neck first. After 6 weeks and no improvement went to orthopedic group X-rays, MRI, CT, inflamation but fusion hardware in place. They tried PT, steroid epidurals, a compounded pain cream but the pins and needle, shooting pain, numbness, and just plain sore neck continues. So referred to a spine specialist in Boston. Saw him yesterday. Had new x-rays, Saw his assistant who asks questions, did the strength tests, ran through my history. He saw me showed me my x-ray. Said no need for revision surgery good but he ordered the EMG test and would want me to see a neurologist. End of appointment. Of course now I have questions and not sure to call for answers. Looking on line the EMG test doesn't look like fun.
