Neck and shoulder pain after eating

Common Questions and Answers about Neck and shoulder pain after eating


Avatar_n_tn The doctor stated it was caused by irritation of the diaphram nerve during the surgical procedure. I am 16 months post surgery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> again experience left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> eat<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g a meal(2 weeks). It is a sharp pain in my left shoulder and radiates up the left side of my neck . Do you have any suggestions of what may be causing the pain? I believe it is related to my stomach some how.
Avatar_n_tn in 09/2005 he sent me to have another ct scan after sever loss of hand control and still sharp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in right side of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> pins <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> neddes in the hand <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> fingers. the results was a pinched nerve at c7-t1. back to surgery in 11-2005 after lossing our son in a motorcycle accident in 10/2005. the surgery was great the pain at the neck area was released during the surgery. but still had major pain in hand and shoulder and back.
Avatar_n_tn I was in a car accident last May. Have 2 Bulging discs in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. I have severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span>. I had a nerve block done on Wednesday, dont feel to bad. Drs saying its not herniated and not pinching any nerves nothing they can do. Doed that mean I have to wait for them to herniate before anything can be done. Nerve block will only last a couple of weeks. On muscle relaxers and migraine meds. never had this problem before dont know what to do.
Avatar_n_tn 1 month ago I had a Nissen fundoplication surgery but since then I have had a right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> that goes almost to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, becomes more intensive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> eat<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g, my doctor told me that for his point of view the shoulder pain is not a problem related with the Nissen fundoplication but I didn't have this pain before the surgery, does anyone know something about this, do you think this problem could have been because of the surgery??, I'll thank you all your support !!
Avatar_n_tn It feels like tension from sitting at the desk, computer, though I get it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> eat<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g a large meal also. I've been doing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> stretches, to little avail. When I crack my neck and pull it to the right, it feels great momentarily, then it tenses up again usually.
Avatar_n_tn I would suggest you to do some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> exercises every day, maintain a good posture while sitting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> make sure your head <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> are well supported when lying down. Other possibilities like cervical spine stenosis, disc herniation or prolapse also need to be ruled out. I would suggest you to get a clinical exam done if the pain persists even after correcting the posture because then the possibility of sinusitis and neuralgias also should be looked into.
Avatar_f_tn Hey y'all! Does anyone else get a headache <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> eat<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g? Sometime accompanied by nausea too. I know that blood pressure goes up after eating and I suppose it can impact CSF pressure. I don't eat anything until after 11am and feel pretty good up until I eat. It happens after my evening meal too...Gotta eat, a disconcerting symptom to say the least.
Avatar_m_tn I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> blades <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> tightness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> popping in my back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> chest for 10 years now. I am 30 yrs old and have been to the physical therapist and chiropractor also for this problem. I noticed the problem started when I was around 20 years old when I first started working at a job where I was at a computer all day.
Avatar_n_tn Is a needle like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> radiates all the way down my right arm. It starts five to min <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> i have the drink and sometimes it lasts for hours, causing me not to sleep because of the pain. It helps when someone rubs or hits my harm slightly to help ease the horrible pain. Feels like my chest was about to burst open, had a hard time breathing. Yesterday I had it for the first time with a wine cooler and that's what prompt me to search for a cause and came upon this forum.
Avatar_n_tn I also had the problem of mucus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> eat<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have found that it is because of a food-allergie.( eggs, diary <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> so on ). When I avoid alletrgic foods I have no mucus problem. When I have an attac ( musus and coughing that could last for hours ) I take half a teaspoon of Baking Soda in a glas of water and have immediate relief.
454739_tn?1205926268 About three weeks after the injury I was still having strong <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in the chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span>/back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the new Medics arrived. My boss was very helpful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> prevented me from doing anything that would further aggrivate my injury, to the point that he would... "strongly council" me if I tried to help or volunteer to do something that he thought would further aggravate my injury. Three weeks after the injury occurred the new medics arrived and settled in and took a look at me.
Avatar_m_tn Two months ago, I had intermittent sharp abdominal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> visited the ER. They ran two EKGs, several blood tests, chest x-ray, a cardiac stress test, and an echo-cardiogram. "The full work-up." They determined I have a Right Bundle Branch Block, but the other tests showed no issues, so they advised me to ignore that issue, and they scheduled me an endoscopy with a GI doctor.

Avatar_n_tn c-4 fused in 06. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> the first two surgeries there was new <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the old was gone. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> the last surgery no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> relief was aquired. Dr. also says c-7 & t1 is herniated and that the two remaining cervical disk are not too bad off. He keeps stressing that I am too young to have my neck totally fused together. (I am 32) But the pain is bad. I live on heavy narcotics (patch and pills). I get severe muscle spasms and burning. Loss of sleep. I am effected by all the meds as well.
Avatar_n_tn Dull achey <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my upper back, No stomach <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>. Felt like a flu but much worse, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> nausea. I felt this way all day but got much worse after eating KFC. I have history of gallstones. The hospital labs (including CT & ultrasound) came back negective for any inflamation of the GB and no bile duct dilation. Blood and urine are fine. I did have one valid textbook gallblater attack a year ago. One note: I have had a constant upper back & neck ache for 2 weeks prior to this bad episode.
Avatar_n_tn It sometimes goes down my arm and up into my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> jaw <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> ear. If I eat anything im in sevier <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> for at least a couple of hours then just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> for the time till I eat again. Its not even worth eating, but then I het so hungry. will this ever go away!!!!
Avatar_f_tn I have been in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> for over a year now!! I have had 3 different MRI's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> c-spine and brachial plexus. They found nothing!!! Emg showed disturbance in my c6 and c7 vertebrates. I have received 1 epidural steroid injection and 2 nerve root blocks! I have no relief with the ESI but have 2 days of relief with the nerve blocks. Right now they have me on gabapentin 1200mg a day, OxyContin ER 10mg a day, norflex twice a day along with muscle relaxers.

Avatar_n_tn I had a total gastrectomy 3-months ago and since I have had severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my upper arm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> area. the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> seems to worsen at night when I am sleeping. The doctors dont beleive it has anything to do with surgery but this has been going on since then. According to the info posted that the nerve endings of diaphram are somehow connected to the shoulders.
Avatar_n_tn I'd follow up on the liver enzyme situation. How much do you weigh? Are you eating well? Taking vitamins? Resting whenever you can? Do you have a fever? Is your belly OK from the C section? With a new baby it's so hard to take care of yourself but it's a must after a Csection. Sounds like you are have been through a lot and are run down. With a new baby we tend to be putting everyone else first and out health can suffer. Forget everything you can and take it easy and rest and baby yourself.
Avatar_n_tn Yup. Pinched nerve city. The land that is very near the place called hell. The question is "where do we go from here?" Often stress (or high sugar levels after a meal) can make these symptoms worse. The reason has to do with osmolality. Fluid crossing membranes exerts additional pressure on the nerve. and that is mediated by osmolality. Some patients get these symptons after eating a big meal and are often told they are "crazy". Glucose levels also affect osmolality.
Avatar_m_tn It's been a few months since I stopped the meds and I've experienced a lot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>. I've been seeking treatment with massage <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> chiropractic care. The pain is not subsiding at all. The chiropractor said that I don't have an injury, but fascia...itis in neck and shoulder. The only meds I'm on now are protonix for reflux, and clonodine for hot flashes, and wellbutrin.
Avatar_n_tn Only this time the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> feels twice as bad, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> its moved to my color bone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> blades, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> some times at the top of my spine. I have not been back to my doctor about the problem as i get the feeling he thinks i'm lying about the pain! Its always uncomfortable but at night its unbearable, i honestly cant sleep and get so annoyed with the pain, sometimes i want to just bang it against something in hope that i will get a pain else where to take my mind of the shoulder pain.
Avatar_m_tn There is a sharp but constant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> that runs from the base of my skull, down the side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> terminates just under my shoulder blade, all on the right side only. There is no pain whatsoever on my left side. The tightness/pain results in me not being able to tilt my head, look up or down, or turn my head to the right. The pain returns to all the previously described locations (face, neck, back) whenever I speak, lift items with my right arm, swim, or work out at all.
