Cervical spine injury question
#4
That's good. Gabapentin helps with the numbness and tingling but it makes me very tired so only take it at night.

I am going to have ACDF c6-c7. I was injured over the summer. I have a lumbar fusion from prior injury. I recently got an IF wave unit, which is like a tens that helps with the shoulder/upperback muscle pain and spasms, and am going to get trigger point injections to help with the pain until surgry. The shots are supposed to help with the headache as well. The Dr said cervical surgery is not as painful and has a much shorter recovery time than lumbar. I hope he's right!

Good luck to you.

Maggie
