Has anyone had the pleasure of experiencing severe neck cramps after a tongue disection? I was cut from ear to ear including the muscles in my neck and now I get neck cramps only on my right side. I have learned to divert them but when I can't catch them on time they are the most painful cramps I have ever experienced. Most of the time they come on at the begining of a yawn. If standing, I have to sit because I actually get dizzy from the pain. Last week I had to pull off to the side of the road because I couldn't fight one off. My wife thought I was having a heart attack as she pulled out her check book to make sure she sent in the check for my life insurance. (just kidding) Seems like everytime I go back to the sugeon I forget to ask him. I met up with a guy I seen in my sugeons office 75 miles away from both our homes. We briefly spoke about our personal experiences with throat cancer and about our Doctor and as we parted ways he asked how about them neck cramps so I know others have to suffer through them.
Enjoy the day..............I do, every one of them
