Q: Why is there a place on the top of my head that is so sore that I can't touch it?

A place on top of my head that is so sore that I can't even touch it,why?I am scared to know what is causing me to do this.It has happened several times and on top of that I am burning and muscles are depleting and making rings in my legs.I am suffering with pain in the middle of my back when I stand for a short period of time.I can hardly get my teeth brushed before my back starts burning and aching to the point that I have to lean against something solid to get some relief.I think I have a spinal cord injury or a surgery gone wrong.I have had an ACD & F spinal diskectomy and 3 months after my right arm started burning and the surgery was in my C5-C6 and the doc said it was my C5....okay...then did the surgery get messed up?Also,I had an ESI gone wrong.I jumped on the table like a bolt of lightning struck me..Which one is causing all these symptoms?HELPPP PLEASE...so miserable and even having trouble breathing in which I think that is medication related..I think? Thanks,Karen

Hi skeetelmore65,

I am so sorry you are experiencing all of this pain. I am not a doctor and cannot begin to explain or even understand all that you are talking about.

Since the burning in your arm started soon after the spinal surgery, it is possible the surgery is involved.  Talk to your doctor about these concerns, especially the C5-C6 and only C5 question. Be sure to include the part about the spinal injection that felt like lightening.

If it is clear the spinal surgery is not the problem, then go to a neurologist.  Take this paragraph you have written and add any other symptoms. This should get you started toward an explanation.

Good luck.
