Your radiologist notes: “Stable anterior C5-6 fusion. Stable C5-6 annular bulging, degenerative buckling of ligamentum flavum, moderate central and bilateral foraminal stenosis. Stable small C4-5 central disc herniation, mild C6-7 annular bulging, and new small C7-T1 disc herniation”. I would agree with your surgeon that you don’t seem to need further surgery. I agree with you that “my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Fibromyalgia makes all other illnesses, issues and diagnoses more complicated”.

If you have facet mediated pain however, you can use facet blocks and rhizotomies (RFA) to control thie pain. This would require a precise examination and positive diagnostic blocks. See:
