Several days ago I noticed aching in my neck while sitting at my desk at work and now 2 days later I'm having constant aching , burning , numbing, sensations on the left side of my neck, radiating down my shoulder, arm and hand > I'm afraid I may have developed another bad disc .(I've already had two cevical disc surgery's in 2004) and the symtoms seems to be the same .
I felt fine at the time, but later that evening, my left shoulder and neck got stiff. About 15min later I got a headache behind my eyes and the pain in my shoulder was shooting down my arm, making my fingers tingle. It was almost unbearable.
Anyways, I have been experiencing chronic left sided pain (arm,shoulder, and neck) along with back pain in the middle since February. I have had this on and off for about 2 years, but it has been chronic for almost 3 months. I wake up with it in the morning and go to bed with it at night. It ranges from a dull ache (almost like the area is weak) to a sharp pain. I have had so much testing done in the past 3 months that I don't know where to turn.
I have been experiencing pain on the left side from my ear to my neck all the way down to my shoulder and upper back. All of this is on my left side and it is very painful. I have not been to the doctor because I do not have insurance. If anyone has been through this please let me know because I am at my wits end.
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.

Globular appearance of the C6-7 herniation. The pain in my neck is nausating, it is mostly on the left side going all the way down my left arm and shoulder. I have severe headaches, blacking out (just recently started) and severe shaking of the hands which also just recently started.
I have had a painful shoulder for the last week where it started for no reason but has built to a very painful shoulder and neck and ear (left side). It feels as though I have slept wrong on my neck but times buy about 5. I went to a doctor who gave me a shot of cortisone to my shoulder. This reduced the pain in the shoulder muscles significantly for 48 hours but now my neck is back to the business of pain and stiffness again with a fuzzy feeling in my ear.

My back is not usually involved, but for too long now I've experienced severe, acute left side pain from as high up my body as my left ear/jaw area, taking in all the left side of my neck, collar, shoulder, left arm, etc. These episodes can last as long as 4 hours. They have become more frequent, longer lasting and more severe. I am out of my mind with pain. My primary doctor says I have fibromyalgia. Two years ago he sent me to an orthopaedic surgeon who recommended surgery for stenosis.

What could be the cause of pain on the left side of neck going down my left shoulder into my inner arm and sometimes in my left hip? The pain can be felt the most when I move a certain way or reach to get something. At night time it is most bothersome, as it seems to be more painful. This pain started about three weeks ago and at the same time I started jogging, I am wondering if it has anything to do with it. But when I am jogging, I don't feel any symptoms at all.

It is now on the side of my head (between my eye and ear) and deep in my neck. It has accelerated to a boiling point, much like it did right before I was referred to the ENT who performed my surgery. I feel like my body is trying to tell me something. I have the pain all day; morning, noon and night. It makes me nauseous, and today I had virtually no appetite. I have tried several OTC painkillers and none of them worked very well. I tried hot and cold compresses; they only aggravated the pain!

While it is possible that you sustained a muscle strain due to your golfing, it is likely that you may have some degenerative disc disease in your cervical spine. DDD is a normal process of the wear and tear on our spine as we age and increases with additional stressors such as repetitive movements. The symptoms you describe could be related to abnormalities in your cervical spine.
I have chest,neck,jaw and head pain on the left side also the top side of left shoulder. I have 4 stents in my heart and I had two mini stokes in 2007. Right now my blood presure on the left side is 106/59 and pulse of 46 Could someone tell me what is going on?
Now the pain has mirrored itself on the right side of my body, hurting in the same ways in the same spots as on the left side. I'm also having a lot of tenderness on my middle and upper back, especially around the shoulder blades. Nothing seems to be swollen, I haven't had any fever or illnesses in the past couple months. My orthopedics doctor couldn't figure it out, has anyone had any similar experiences?

I have been through the family dr who sent me for a neck MRA and no findings---I have been to the dentist (thought maybe TMJ) and now wear a night guard but no change---I have been to the eye dr since I feel pressure around/in my eye and he says things look just fine---I have also been to a neurologist and they took an MRI head and neck (nothing) and did a nerve study on my left side (since that is where I was going numb) and all was normal.
The headaches stem from the base of my neck on the right side up and pain goes down the shoulder to my bisep and under the armpit. I am not sure what the next step is as far as the company doctors go, but I have got to get some answers to help me feel better.
Since you are sick, you may be lying in bed with more pillows and bending your neck wrong. It's just not unusual to have neck pain when you are sick, although a very stiff neck can be a sign of meningitis, so be sure you keep that in mind.
I thought that perhaps my shoulder issues were the cause of the neck and head pain I was getting on the same side (left) but as my shoulder itself felt better and got stronger, the neck and head pain on the left side continued. When the MRI was done, everything seemed normal except a small mass was found in the area of my carotid artery/ behind my clavicle bone not far from the aortic arch.
