I had herniated C5-6 with bone spurs (osteophytes) and don't remember headaches. Of course, I always have had migraines....however, I didn't have the other C3-5 problem you do. Maybe you could call the nurse and ask her? Sorry I wasn't much help.

I'm going to smile like nothing is wrong, act like everything is perfect, and pretend its not hurting me.
