I have had 2 cervical spine surgeries. The 1st was on C4,5, and 6. The surgery resulted in C4 and T1 to bulge because of the plate. I had to have C4 fused to C5 and now I m scheduled to have exploratory surgery for pseudo-arthrosis of C4. I m now having pain just above the middle of my spine and lower spine. My feet are feeling cold and prickly. Would my symptoms be related to my past surgeries and the pseudo-arthrosis? I am on SSDI AND CAN NOT AFFORD TO PAY.....

Here and there I have gotten patches of goosebumps, but only on the left side of my body. Today it is only on my left forearm . They arise for apx 15-30 secs, then go away. 15-45 mins later I will have a recurrence. I have found some VERY mixed explanations for the cause. As a nursing student, none of them seemed quite accurate. I have had a full blood panel recently and hormone panel recently, all results well within the range of normal. Is there a logical explanation for this? My thought was a pinched nerve in the cervical vertebrae , as I have had mild, ongoing neck issues. So far, this theory has not been given as an explanation.
