One other possibility to throw into your differential is evaluating the scalene muscles. They refer pain down the thumb side of the arm/hand, and attach to your area of previous surgery, so may be scarred over. I guess a good question would be whether you had anterior or posterior entry into the neck.
Anterior.....(she said, hopefully)....
I'll be sure to come back after my next encounter with DLs and let ya'll know if head positioning takes care of it, or where the shock travels if I get it again.
I really appreciate the suggestions.
