    I had my operation on ACDF C5-6 3 months back and all was perfectly fine until recently. I now have sharps pains on the left of my neck, around the carotid artery. Its throbbing pain and resonates with the pulse. It's freaking me out. Could it be some blockage or something. Anyone here ever had this or met anyone with this pain.

    Really unsure what to make of it. I hope what you are experiencing is only just a group of neck muscles spasming. You should consult your surgeon and he might have insights on this in ways none of us can. Maybe its a twitch (a major one) and it passes.
