I am at work and have a whiplash like pain in my right side of my shoulder and neck that is limiting the movement of my head it hurts so bad?? I had a similar pain in the same place after my biopsy, so I associate that with my liver??
I too suffer from shoulder and neck pain and after an MRI it was discovered that I had disc protrusions at three levels caused by a rear end motor vehicle accident a year earlier and that the shoulder pain was referred from the neck. I agree with the prior post about insisting on the neck MRI although I would only think of surgery as a last resort.
I share your frustration and worry. I have had a similar headache and pain on the right side of my body (mostly arm and hand) for over 2 years now. I have had neck x-rays and MRIs of my brain and neck. So far I have seen 4 doctors who have given 4 different diagnoses. Currently I am seeing a neurologist who suggested that I slowly reduce my acetaminophen intake and use ibuprophen instead. My best wishes; please post again if you get any answers and I will do the same.
2011 In the past few months I have developed a constant pain in my left and sometimes my right shoulder blade. It becomes worse and moves to my outer area of my left spine and causes a burning sensation. Anything I do seems to make it inflamed. e.g. carrying a bag on my shoulder, learning over the counter at work. cutting sewing etc. any suggestions please.
I have a very tender area between my shoulder blades on my spine, my arm really hurts between the right side of my neck all the way past my elbow. I know it isn't broken, but wonder if I injured my spine or a tendon. At any rate, it is almost unbearable now. No OTC pain killers are working to make it better. I am also having a constant headache, which may be due to a sinus infection. I am on antibiotics for that. I have an appointment with a neurosurgeon in 3 weeks.
I have had the pain in the hip and down the leg and in the left side of neck, shoulder and arm, and hand. It almost seems like my left side is "frozen up". When you take your arm and put it behind your back does it freeze up on you? If you work hard and then sit is it hard to get up? Also when you sit for long periods and get up and take a step does it feel like your leg is going to collapse from the pain and nerve pinching. Well, if this sounds remotely familiar see a chiropractor.
It radiates around the right side of my head and at times causes excruciating pain and a numb like sensation in my right ear. My chiro adjusts my neck and mentions that there is heat and inflamation around the c-spine area, especially at the top where the atlas muscle is. His helper, does trigger point therapy on my neck and shoulders. This seems to help way more than the adjustments. My regular physician is very uncomfortable with the chiro adjusting my neck.
The right side of my neck and front part of my shoulder has been hurting for a week now. It gets worse when I sleep. I have never had surgery or any pre-existing health concerns regarding this. I am positive my pillows play a large role in this and I have been a little bit stressed because it is around the holidays. I was traveling and also I have been learning A LOT of new things at work. Could it be stress and pillow related or something else? Should I go to the doctor?

I feel weird tingling painful dull sensations under the left eye, on the left temple and forehead, and at the chin on the left side. These are all areas that the Trigeminal nerve go to. Also the nerves seem to really affect the muscles in this area. I have had an MRI of the brain done (with and without contrast), CT scan of sinuses, MRI of TMJ, bloodwork, multiple mouth guards from dentists. All tests have proven to be negative.
I had an MRI done and it showed two bulging discs on my C5/ C6 area, a tear in my tendon, along with impingement on the nerve. The pain radiated down my left side of my neck, into the shoulder and down the left arm to my fingers. It was the most excruciating pain ever! I thought I was having a heart attack because it was all on my left side and the pain was absolutely unbearable. During the day, it was so bad, except for lifting my arm. i couldn't... Too much pain.

Its been around for going on two years. Thanks for reading and I hope to recieve awesome feedback!
It is difficult or maybe even impossible (due to pinching pain) to turn my head to the right. The muscle knot is also on the right side of my back. What can I do to help ease the pain and "fix" the knot in my back?
I also have a constant burning/pain in my right shoulder and up the right side of my neck. It started a month or so ago. I noticed a shooting/ burning pain that went from the back of my wrist to my upper elbow. First I thought I'd slep on it wrong but after a couple of days the pain increased. I was concerned that I was having a stroke or heart attack. The pain/burning has moved up into my shoulders and the burning is constant. I feel pain when I lift my arms or movement.

A little over a week ago I woke up with what felt like a pulled muscle in my neck, which causes stiff neck and pain in my neck and shoulder on the right side. Two days later, it had radiated up to my jaw and ear (still right side only) and sometimes would cause me to feel pain behind my right eye-sort of like a migraine. A day after that I had pain at the base of my skull on the right side alone with an almost burning sensation in my neck and shoulder.

Three weeks ago I started getting constant pain in the upper back part of the right side of my neck and along the side of the right neck (by the bg arteries) and even under my right lower jaw. I have no swollen glands but constant fullness, pressure and discomfort. I have noticed that moving my head around relieves this sensation, as if it's pinching a nerve?
3 weeks ago I started having severe pain and stiffness in my neck and upper back , 9 days ago it changed and I now still have a sore neck but the biggest problem is the severe pain in my shoulder and shoulder blade area, under arm and arm all the way to my wrist(all right side). I also have major twitching all day long, cramping, tingling, heavy pain feeling and a dull constant ache with some sharp pains as well. This pain is constant however at night is always worse.
