Hello Jen. Personally I have no pain, only numbness that started from my hands and now also appeared on my feet. Doctors I saw evaluated that surgery will drastically improve my condition, however, I am looking for alternatives and this is one of the reason I created the topic.

Coming to your question, I did try a neck collar that only made my symptoms worse.

Bill I can tell you the surgery is not that big of a deal. I’m 35 and had a fusion done a year and a half ago on c4c5. It started as you said In fingers. Eventually both of my arms were numb. I was unable to wake them. I researched my surgeon and picked the best one in my opinion. Can honestly say I had a 100% improvement. I felt and was ready to go back to normal activities in two days. Honestly wish I’d had done it sooner. I understand not wanting to go the surgical route. But I definitely suggest you research all your options. And if you do surgery talk to a lot of people in your area n find a good surgeon.
