    complications of C2 fracture??Help!!

    Hello my name is celeste and i'm new here.
    I was just wondering whether any one here has fractured their C2 adontoid process??I fractured mine way back in 1985 and subsiquently had a co-axial fusion of the adontoid process.
    Do any of you have any problems now with your neck??I was referred to a neuro surgeon last year and xrays revealed that I had developed arthritis (i was having dizzy spells and alot of pain there.)I now have a tingling upthe side of my face and also a kind of numbness.Also the sensation imfeeling at the back of my neck is like a pressure pulling pain that makes me feel kind of sick is this normal??I have never come across anyone else that has broken this bone so any advice would be graetly appreciated I also have fibromyalagia so was wondering whether any of this could be down to that?? <IMG SRC="">
    many thanks celeste

    hi ......just wanted to say that i have just been told that i have a ruptured disk at c/2 c3/c4 that is compressing quite severly on my spinal cord...the worse area being c2..i am wondering..did u have autonomic problems due to this? whenever i lay down especially ,my face starts burning,i get dizzy .feel like i am gonna pass out....heart pounds then slows way down,sweat around my neck and forehead...neuro told me today that this can be signs of autonomic failure and that if it continues when i lay or my breathing keeps being shallow(fergot to tell u that one) to go to the emergency room and take my films cuz i may have to be admitted right then.....this scares me..did u have any thing like this? thanks so much and i am sorry i couldn't help u cuz i haven't had the surgery.......anyway my problems are also..bad leg weakness,using cane,my rt arm isn't functioning good,numbness almost everywhere,tingling,burning,dizzy,fatigu e.etc... thanks again ,Michelle
