17 years ago I had papillary thyroid cancer. 3 months ago I had a reoccurance and had 15 lymph nodes removed from left side of neck. I have had not only the numbness from check bones down to chest, but also tingling. Tingling like when dentist novicaine wears off, irritating and painful.
Every day I wake up to these symptoms somewhere. My surgeon has no ideas or the second surgeon. They both just threw up their hands and said they didn't know why. No one has done any testing or tried to find out WHY.
Have also seen regular Phd, physical medicine - he put me on gabepintine (nerve blocker) takes edge off but have had to increase dose and don't like the side affects of the pills. He also told me I would have this without the surgery ~ seriously? , physical therapy and chiro.
Does anyone have any idea's??? At my wits end.
