You posted on my other board as well...I see your problems now..I hope you are seeing a surgeon as well...I think a cervical fusion is in your future...unfortunately...That might eliminate a lot of your pain. I had a cervical fusion and it was very successful...C 4-5, 5-6, 6-7.....360 with a plate in the front and rods and screws in the back...I have a lumbar fusion as well L1 to S1, but the jury is still out on this one...Hang in their kiddo..You will get well...and feel better soon...I hope you have a good pain management doc...
