I had a neck fusion of 4,5,and 6 October 2008. In recent months I have had the vertebrae above irritated and out of place. Also I have both sides of my jaws treated by him. It has helped me to hear out of my ears which always feel filled with fluid.. T
Who do I see for the higher neck and facial/jaw issues. Will I need to have surgery on my upper neck to stabilize it?
Well, without a detailed description or a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms or suggest an appropriate management plan. You could try consulting a primary care physician initially with possible reference to an orthopedician/ neurosurgeon/ ENT specialist for appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.
