I have a disc in my neck c7 that is inflamed & swollen and causing severe headaches . i have had spinal fusion at l5 thru s1 the 1st was in august 2011 which included mesh cage that my body rejected and the fusion did not take. I had 2nd back surgery in Feb 2012 to correct the 1st surgery. I now have knots aroung the incision in my back.
Dear I am sorry for the symptoms you are suffering. I think it is time you make another check at your neurologist and maybe schedule an cervical MRI. In the meantime use ibuprofen to dominate pain. Wish you all the best Regards
