I am unsure if anybody can help me with this. For around 25 years I have had the most horrendous left shoulder blade/neck pain. I have had physiotherapy, seen a chiropractor, had endless x rays, had aromatherapy, had acupuncture, taken endless painkillers…the list is endless. Also, 21 years ago my physiotherapist said that I was …. "born with a flat spine"!? Every treatment I have had has brought zero results, freedom from pain or respite.

Thanks for writing. While it's impossible for someone to diagnose you with spondylitis over the Internet, based on the symptoms you're describing, it's unlikely you're suffering from this disease. Spondylitis only affects about 0.2% of the adult population in America. The most common early signs of spondylitis are constant pain and stiffness in the low back, buttocks and hips that continue for more than three months.

Hello- I've been having a nagging pain in my neck and shoulder blade( mostly on the left shoulder blade) for several months now. I have always thought it is either my mattress or pillow that's causing it and have changed several to no sucess.

He suggested I get an MRI (which I didnt get, since I wasnt very happy with the doctor).

On 26 Aug 2008, I had a total parotidectomy due to a 5 cm deep lobe tumor. After the surgery pain subsided, I was free from the head/neck/shoulder pain for about a month. Since then, the pain has gotten worse, however two additional locations have started to hurt. 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'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 also have problems with my legs being tingly at times and the toes on my left foot go numb. The dull achy pain that does not go away is on the right side of my neck.
