Thank you Barbara, I think we were posting at pretty much the same time! 🙂 It seems that my symptoms are worse, to include then pressure at the base of my skull when I tuck my chin. Rotation to the left seems okay, a strain to the right of my neck and pain, but what is most noticeable to me then is it feels like I can feel my heartbeat in my head. I can barely rotate to the the right, but it is much sharper pain.
I understand (and appreciate) your knowledge and research. I have read everything I can get my hands on to try and understand. I need to learn and wrap my head around this, I have pretty bad anxiety so learning about it and feeling like I know enough to ask the right questions and be proactive in my care is important to me. I have contemplated writing to the radiologist and asking them specifically for relevant measurements from both the 2012 and 2014 images. I don’t know what good that would do though, except I’d know.
You’ve had decompression surgery? When was yours? Did you have relief?
