I work up with pain on the left side of my neck just where my neck meets my shoulder. It was a deep ache which bothered me most of the day. Later, it got worse. It now is a deep sharp pain which radiates into my left ear and eye. I took a strong pain reliever I just happened to have, which has taken the edge off, but when it wears off, I'm going to be in trouble. I won't be able to even get out of bed. What do you suggest. I had a cervical fusion at c4-5 and c5-6 about 10 years ago, but never had this kind of pain....I only had left arm pain. This is completely different. I have a traction unit, but am afraid to lie down and put my neck into it. Thanks.
