Hello and welcome to HealingWell. I am sorry to hear of your issues and I do understand you worries and concerns.
From what I know, the symptoms of an aortic aneurysm depend on the location of the bulge along the artery. When an aortic aneurysm develops in the upper region of the aorta in the chest, this condition is called a thoracic aortic aneurysm. People with this type of aneurysm may develop sensations of pain within the chest, neck, upper back or jaw.
I am sure with your C6-C7 spinal fushion which may not be intact that it is hard for your Dr. to distinguish where the pain is originating. Please do be your own best advocate and seek out a second opinion re your pain.
I hope one of our other members may have some personal input for you.
