Has anyone here had to have cervical spine surgery? Mine is C 5 & 6 and has gotten progressively worse the last 9 mos. Blamed it on the fibro but is now too painful to ignore. I am going to have a nerve block this Wednesday to see if that helps. The doc looked at my mri and said I shouldn't be hurting so badly, that I had plenty of room in the spinal canal. He must not understand about fibro pain. I had lower lumbar back surgery in 1994 and got the fibro after that so I am somewhat fearful of more surgery. But, if this doesn't help, I'll have to have it done. I am so tired of screaming pain. Constant Biofreeze, lidocaine patches, walking around the house with a microwave heat pad on my neck and sleeping with a heating pad. As you all know, constant pain wears on you. Plus the additonal pain of fibro.
