For over a year, I've had severe right upper extremity pain. Mosty in my right shoulder with radiating pain down arm. First surgery was done to repair shoulder socket which required anchors. Second surgery ACDF at C6/7. Symptoms returned with a vengeance with mind numbing tinnitus . EMG shows chronic c6/7 damage while recent MRI revealed severe stenosis at c3/4 and right foraminal stenosis at c5/6. Symptoms include severe shoulder pain radiating to pinky side of hands, tinnitus, shortness of breath, occipital fullness. Dr. wants to operate on c8. I'm so frustrated with the surgeon that I'm ready to give up. I can't sleep, go out, or function due to the pain. Do I keep chipping away with surgeries until the source is found or give in to a pain pump. Life is bleak.
