Hi been quite a few years since ive been on here, i had a disectomy at c5/c6 quite a few years ago and things have been great no pain and been getting on with my life.
The last 2 weeks though i have pain and dont know what to do, started in my neck across my right shoulder into my back by my shoulder blade my tricep on my right arm and my pointing finger has now gone numb.
Spoke to doctor 2 weeks ago as i still have codiene from time to time with a stiff neck but no probs, but the codiene wasnt covering the pain which i told her so she prescribed me naproxin. Anyway pain got a little better and codiene began to help so asked doctor for somemore but she wasnt happy with me because id said it wasnt working, made me feel like crap and kept reiterating that i said it wasnt working, she did eventually prescribe me more and it has helped but the pains not going away. She also tried to get me to contact the physio which i tried but they just want to email me stretches to try ive tried always to relieve the pain even looked on ebay for some stretches but they havent relieved the pain. Im apprehensive now about calling her again as she said its muscular but a recent development about the last week is the numb finger where as when i rang her initally it wasnt the case and no pins and needles like i had the other side before.
I dont know what to do now or who to contact with this and due to the covid 19 i dont know what can be done.
Im looking for some advice please, hope someone can help
