That is good advice. Its has been a week or so, And have a little muscle twitching down my arm and feel as if my arm has lost strength. But it has calmed down. I am going to leave it until Monday to see if it disappears, if not I will see the doc.
I thought of another possibility of what might be going on, which I have to assume when you first had all this, the docs made sure your heart and blood pressure were okay, and if not, go see a doc for a checkup. At the same time, they should at least do an ordinary X-ray of your neck, just to see if the repair is holding up, you don't want a loose screw to fester. Another thing, it could very well be if you go as easy as you can with that neck of yours and the arm, don't do any exercise that will put too much pressure on it, but remain active, then it may clear itself up in a couple weeks. And don't panic over this. You say the future doesn't look too bright... but son, there are many possible futures for people, so daydream when you get anxious, think of other things you might choose to do with your work plans that will give you what you want out of life, just in case. I think your ideas of acupuncture and antiinflamatories is a great plan. And let this be a lesson in planning for the unexpected, always keep your finances in good order, keep some money in the bank, and also remember you are not your job; you are what kindnesses you give, what you teach, and what you love.
Thank you for your feedback it is much appreciated. I have just started taking some anti inflam tablets to see if this will work and had some acupuncture yesterday. I am in the army which does have a physical side. The future does not look to bright at this moment in time.
