    you will find many members here that have or have had the same type of thing you are going through. i had the same basic symptoms as you, pins and needles in right arm and neck pain. i ended up needing acdf c4-c7 surgery in feb. 2018, surgery went well and i feel pretty good today. good luck and keep us posted.
  • Hi bluewater
    Welcome this is a great place to get support and information. One thing I might mention is if you want to go directly to those who have dealt with neck issues go to the top of the page and click on Forums. The drop down shows "neck" click on it and it takes you to posts and messages from before related to necks. 
    Take care and best wishes

  • We may have similar issues, sadly! I just scheduled surgery for c5-6/c6-7 disc replacement next month, tentatively. My pain is neck, upper/mid back, shoulder, and intermittent arm weakness/ache for the past several years. The past 6 months have been the worst. I've had 3 c6-7 epidural injections that help but not for long. I'm scheduled for another next week. Still not sure if surgery is a good idea!
