In February of this year my dog knocked me over and turned my 2 bulging cervival discs into ruptured (C5-7). I had the ACDF surgery on July 18th...I also had osteophytes and severe spinal compression so I had no choice but to opt for fusion.
I am doing extremely well considering the circumstances but one thing that has been not very pleasant is I have been having a sharp burning pain in my left shoulder blade - tho not all the time and can be very random when it happens, especially when I turn my head at random angles. My neck has been locking up, higher then where my injury occurred. It feels like when I go to turn my head, even slightly, it catches, clicks then turns.
So my question is, does anyone else with this injury or surgery feel these things and second, I ordered the TENS unit and does it truly help with the pain?
