Hi and welcome!

I just wanted to tell you that Gabapentin (Neurontin) was helpful for me with the nerve pain. It takes some getting used to, but no amount of narcotics would keep the nerve pain in check for me until I added Gabapentin to the mix.

I have had alot of acupuncture and it can be of great help to relax those spasms. Some insurance is providing acupuncture coverage.

Hope you find some relief soon.

10/2005 MVA C5-C6 herniation w/ cord impingement/displacement Unable to work full time.
July 31, 2006 Surgery successfully completed Prodisc-C C5/C6 on in Straubing, Germany by Dr. Bertagnoli. Able to work full time since 1 month post op, but some pain remains.
10/2008 3 surgeons confirm C6/C7 needs ADR and always has.
Has anyone had a second ADR surgery on an adjacent level?
