My daughter is 5 months post MCA & has non-union healing of C-2, C-4 fractures. She had a halo brace for 3 months, now in a hard collar. She didn't wear her collar a couple of evenings recently and now has increased neck pain & a new right upper arm pain from neck to elbow. We are currently on vacation so I'm concerned the arm pain may be related to her broken neck. Is this something that can wait 4 days to check out - or should I take her to a nearby ER? She is taking Oxicotin and Percocet without pain relief.
