I am new to this site and have read a lot of posts sounding similar to my symptoms. I had a cervical fusion of c5-6-7 in July 2016 after years of neck and back issues. I always had neck pain and numbness and weakness in my left arm. I was dropping things and would get pins and needles in my hand on and off. After surgery my symptoms in my arm never resolved. My surgeon sent me for nerve studies because he felt my symptoms were coming from the ulnar nerve. The study did show compression and cubital tunnel syndrome and I was told I needed another surgery. I had anterior transposition of the ulnar nerve on Dec 16 2016. I have not been the same since. The pain in my elbow area is excruciating constantly. The burning stabbing spasms are horrendous. I cannot touch my skin in the elbow area nor can I have any pressure to the area including clothing. I'm taking 900 mg neurontin for nerve pain, soma for spasms as needed, aleeve twice a day, vit c, vit d and Percocet as needed tid. I've been on these meds for months since my neck problems actually. My pm doctor was going to try pt but does not feel it will be helpful to me at this point because of the severity of tactile pain. He encouraged using my arm and doing exercises with it at home as much as possible. I don't know what do do at this point. He mentioned the possibility of this being complex regional pain syndrome but he's not definite at this point.
