Hello,

It may be due to nerve compression due to fusion at cervical spine level.

For further assessment you may require MRI neck, nerve conduction studies after spine surgeon consultation.

You may require require surgical intervention after surgeon consultation.

You may require physical therapy after physiotherapist consultation.

You can take tablet Pregabalin and multivitamin after consultation

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
