    5 months post ACDF - Strange Symptoms

    Ok so I'm about 5 months post ACDF (2 levels) and I have noticed if I am doing anything semi active like vacuuming, general cleaning etc that I feel completely weak, kind of like I am going to faint. Usually starts hitting me about 5 minutes after I start being active. My legs get a bit wobbly and my hands get very shaky. I have to sit down for a few minutes to catch my breath. I also feel dizzy and a little off balance. This seems to come and go.

    I am not sure if this is related to ACDF or if it is just a vitamin deficiency, stress or something else. My right arm seems to be the worst when trembling, it is almost hard to pick up anything after exercise because its shaking so bad.

    Anyone have thoughts on what it could be? Thanks again.

    Sure sounds like a problem to take back to the doctor. Maybe a follow-up MRI is in order?
