I have the same thing. Hands arms and shoulders and neck pain. Had 2 surgeries. 1st one decompression with 11mm herniation. 2nd one 4 months ago was duraplasty. Sad to say no change yet
Hi I was going to ask the same questions as Kerri C asked and to ask if you may also have Syringomyelia?
Did you have duraplasty done also? I do know symptoms can return and most of the time are short lived. The nerves take a long time to heal and can start to go haywire around this point in time.
Do you have a chiari specialist? It might be worth giving your NS a call so he/she can evaluate your situation
Sometimes it can be more than just normal healing. Scar tissue can occur and cause CSF obstruction again. I went through that as well
Good luck and I hope you find answers
