extreme tightness in neck and shoulders, lots of symptoms
I haven't posted here in quite awhile. I had a tumor removed from inside my spinal cord at T1 and T2. I am struggling with extreme tightness in my neck and shoulders.
With this pain and tightness I am also struggling with blurry vision, sinus problems, ringing in one ear, headaches and pressure behind and above one eye, dizziness. I also have problems with my leg and pain in my forearms.
I am wondering if anyone else has had these problems and most of all wondering if these other symptoms are being caused from the tightness in my neck muscles. I feel it is all related but am scared that there is something else going on and am looking for some support.
I also have a bulging disk at c4-5 and a broken c7 which is called a clay shovelers fracture. Both of these happened after my laminectomy to remove the tumor.
Just a further note.. I have an arnold chiara malformation which the neuros don't feel are causing me a problem. It is small and I have good spinal flow.
My neuro has suggested botox injection in my neck and shoulders.. I am considering this but wanted to get more information before i make a decision.
Thanks for reading this somewhat lenghly post and for any help you can give.
