I fx c2 and 3 in an auto accident 22 yrs. ago. There was no spinal cord injury, Thank God. However, today and for the past few years i have been suffering from Painful muscle spasm in the neck and right shoulder area, and numbness, tingling and weakness in my right arm and hand, especially in index and pinky fingers. An EMG and MRI have shown mild arthritis in c2,3 area minimal bulging disc in c5, 6 area and cervical fusion of c2 and 3 with total straightening of cervical spine area.aka..cervial spine lordosis. My question is ..."Do i just have to live with all of this pain?, PT and collars and arms splints help but do not take away the pain...Is this a situation which requires pain management and what is pain management? Can Anybody help me?, Does anyone have any answers? Dr's are nice but not helpful...any suggestions???, Please?
