    Neck please help

    Has anyone had a third curve? I have had a lumbar, thoracic and now cervical curve. It's so painful and I'm going for an X-ray to see how much it progressed. Has anyone had surgery for the neck after being fused to the sacrum? Was it successful? What were your new limitations? So much pain. I would really appreciate anyone who has gone through this. Trying to determine if I have to live in pain.

    Thanks Jackie, I'm going for X-rays this week. I am already fused from t3- to s1. Everything above t3 is painful and then everything below meaning my knees and feet.
