Had my 2 level acdf in Oct.
The last week I have been having new numbness in arms and both hands spoke to Nuero's office and they said new surgery takes time blah blah. I never had this feeling this bad pre-surgery I had intermitten "tinglin" in one arm and one finger ...now its in two arms and 2 hands AGGGHHHH!

Sorry you're having more problems. Hopefully it will stop soon.

I have no personal experience with Lyrica but did have a friend that uses it with good results and have read others using it in different forums that do well on it as well.

I have also read a few that they couldn't handle the side effects of it. One that stands out in my mind is dizziness. But with continued use, that dissipates with most people.

I hope it works for you.
