I was doing so well lately. I even started back at school. My neck pains came back on the forth and with it the balance issues. I got the tordol shot on the sixth and it worked till the 11. Same balance instability. I don't know what to do.
I.understand u...this is making really insecure!!! As others always say healing takes a long time and sometimes had set backs too.as u were more active it might be too much stress for ur body...and 6months is not healed completly.anyhow i would get my discs checked to see if thetre is nothing related.
I am 6 mo post op on feb 20th from 2nd surgery and have noticed symptoms slowly creeping back over the past few months. I'm seein my ns this week to find some answers. I have eds so I'm thinkin its instability even tho my ns said I didn't have it before surgery. Or its somethin else, unless this is just how I am gonna be now, which I hope not. Have u spoke to ur dr about this yet?
It can take up to 2 yrs for ur nerves to heal completely and longer if u have EDS....plus we all heal at diff rates, and school carrying books, sitting in florescent lights can all cause u to feel poorly as u r still healing.
U may just be doing too much....but it is wise to see if u have nething else going on,
At school, get a book stand so u r not looking down...there r wedges so u can have ur work on an angle so help with this....
I bought recently a book stand and I don't use backpacks at all. My books are light for textbooks. I carry them in my arms because I know they will hurt my neck and shoulders if I use a backpack.
I am a part time student. I only have 2 classes and my biggest problem is the second class is 2 hours long with no break but it is only 2 days a week. My other class is one hour long Monday Wednesday and Friday and lab for 2 hours that I can leave at any time on Thursday. Before the surgery I was able to do this load and still be exhausted at the end of the day, but my symptoms weren't as visible as they are now. My teacher notices them a lot in the two hour class.
