@donfeld, I moved your message to this existing discussion in the Head & Neck Cancer group (https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/head-neck-cancer/). I think you'll appreciate following the H&N Cancer group and connecting with others like @alpaca @karly @jimchardy @roberthenry @yesmei123 @skoshi and more.

The American Head & Neck Society has a very informative article about radiation damage of the head and neck, including damage to skin, connective tissue, muscles, nerves and blood vessels.

Don, you mention that you also have spasms and nerve pain. Is the pain constant? What triggers the spasms?

It happens like 5 or 6 times a day and it when I suddenly caught my neck a certain way the pad is spasm starts and it lasts for like 15 seconds to look as I look like a epileptic fit person. My right side of my neck where the muscle attaches to the I guess shoulders they save that that muscle has shrunk and it's it's stretched out too far which makes my neck and shoulders push forward. If I support my head by my chin area and alleviate some of the pain. I'm seeing a pain doctor that says he can help in the facet joints are course some of my cervical spine I have bone on bone which they told me today. Taking it day-by-day is what I life is about and it will not go on opioids again. I will not, not,not!
