Collar bone hardware, 5 months out, unusual pain
I had a motorcycle accident Memorial day weekend (May 2010). I had surgery to correct this because the collar bone was offset and in three pieces.  The surgery went beautifully. I have dealt with numbness that has been slowly retreating.  I get a deep itch, but I still figure this is part of the healing process.  In the past few days, I am now getting a deep pain in this area.  At times it intensifies and shoots through my shoulder.  It is intense, I'd say 8/10 for a brief moment.  My current ache is probably a 3-4/10.  Up till 2-3 weeks ago I'd say my baseline pain was 1/10 or less.  I had a migraine this evening...and have been well controlled without one for over four years, so I'm worried there may be something significant happening.  How long should I wait to schedule an appointment to have this looked at? (I was thinking of waiting to see if this resolved by Monday). Should I go back to my surgeon, or should I go to my regular doctor? Thanks so much for any input!
