  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • Had cervical neck surgery on C2 thru C4 in February 2011. Left hand got numb about a year later. A local neurologist said I had carpal tunnel and I was operated on in April 2013. No improvement. Had additional neck surgery on C2-C4 in June 2013. No improvement. Could amlodipine besylate 10mg 1/day be causing the problem?
