I was diagnosed with KFS back in 2002 when I went in to the hospital to have 2 disc replaced in my neck....I actually had a bad disc, then 2 good disc, then another bad disc! I don't have my medical reports right in front of me, so can't even recall which discs they replaced.
I was having numbness, tingling, etc. in my left arm and hand, and when they did my exam they saw it on the films.
I've got it at c/3, c/4.
I played football, baseball and wrestled in high school, and now I know why I could never do a neck bridge! In fact, my surgeon even asked me during my initial visit if I'd ever played sports, and when I replied "yes", he asked about how well I could do a neck bridge? When I told him I never could bend backwards to do that, he said "I know you couldn't" and told me I had KFS.
Anyway, I went thru high school sports, a military physical, and many other work-related physicals and it was never diagnosed until 2002.....Should that have been noticed at least once during all those, or is it pretty common to be missed ?
Also,I don't know if these are related, but recently I've been experiencing issues with pain, aching, stiffness, etc. in my right shoulder-blade area...kinda between the shoulder-blade and my collarbone.
I just wanted to ask if anybody has had any issues in that area that have been diagnosed as being related to the KFS?
Thanks for your time.
