I had a spinal fusion a year and a half ago, c3-4,c4-5,c5-6. Everything seemed ok, than my right pinky finger swelled up at the joint, than it traveled up my arm to my inner and outer elbow, into my shoulder blade area, identical symptoms on the left side. One day my left hand middle finger did not move, no pain, no tingling, nothing, but the other fingers moved. Dr. is not help, did nerve conduction test and it is ok, pain clinic-shots and meds, no help. I am at a loss, everyone says it has to do with the fusion, Dr. says it is fine. I have a damaged disk under the fusion but it is not a problem he says. ?????? I am 39!!!
