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.
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've been having alot of neck, shoulder and arm pain. My doctor ordered an MRI and the report showed bulging annulus c6-c7 but no focal disc protrusions, mild posterior lateral spurring on the right at c5-c6 with a slight thecal sac encroachment. What does this mean? Will this get better on it's own? I have severe pain that travels down my left arm so bad I can't even use my arm. It's worse when I first get out of bed in the mornings. Is this going to require surgery?
She cries with shoulder and arm pain.We position her with pillows alternating at different times.Would an arm sling help with this?
My name is LISA and I am a 40-year-old woman with pain concentrated in my left shoulder and radiating to my upper arm and armpit area. I also have numbness and tingling traveling down my left arm to my little finger. This pain and numbness intensifies on movement of the shoulder such as lifting my arm across my body, sitting, sleeping and moving It also is very uncomfortable to sleep at night. I can not lie on my left side as it causes increased pain and numbness to the arm.
Meanwhile you could try restricting the movement around the neck and shoulder region. Try using a firm mattress to sleep and avoid thick pillows. Warm compresses and NSAIDS may be helpful for pain relief as well. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
I have also had pain in both arms from the shoulder to the elbow, but more so in the right arm. I also have pain at the top of my right leg. It hurts more when I first stand, but lessens as I walk. The pain in my neck is constant...its like a stiff neck. The arm sometimes has shooting pain, but mostly when I turn it a certain way.I also have slight pain in my lower back and sides but nothing like the other pain. I have not changed mattress,pillows or my sleeping habits.
Temporal tendinitis mimics migraines including TMJ pain temporal headaches, tooth sensitivity, neck and shoulder pain. Treatment includes injecting local anesthetics and other medicines, moist heat muscle relaxants and NSAIDs along with physiotherapy. Multiple sclerosis would also need to be excluded.
Sir, Past 5 years i am suffering from pain at neck and left side shoulder.
I was in a car accident last May. Have 2 Bulging discs in neck. I have severe pain in me neck and back and shoulder. 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.
but still had major pain in hand and shoulder and back.The surgery was over a year ago and have delevoped pain in both side of neck and numbness in hands and horrible headache from the back of my neck up. i have been on major pain killers and viocdin and durgessic patches and lycria for the pin and needles in hand and neck. the insurance has stopped me from getting pain management to get me off of pain killers. And now i have just had another ct scam and mri.
It could be a rotator cuff problem, or it could originate in your neck. Both would be common causes of shoulder pain and dysfunction like this. At night, use pillows to support the arm. Maybe YouTubes like this will help you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?
Hi all, I am only 8 weeks,but I already am showing a bit and already don't feel food sleeping on my stomach so I sleep on my sides,for three daya now my right shoulder is killing me so bad that even when I'm asleep and want to turn to the other side,I wake up from pain...what should I do?
I suggest you to apply cold compresses on the right side shoulder and take some anti inflammatory pain killers like Diclofen or Ibuprfen after prescription from your doctor. Give complete rest to the part , apply some topical muscle relaxants and avoid doing any activity like raising your arms or stretching the arms which causes any further damage.
Along with this back, should and neck pain, I was getting headaches, the muscle/tendon along the left side of my throat/nick was/is extremely sore to touch, plus when the pain is really bad, my left eye becomes quite heavy (Best way I can explain it.) and the pupil doesn't dilate properly along with the other one. It always stays much smaller than my right eyes pupil. I am constantly in pain and no one seems to be able to help me. Any ideas of what to do next?
The pains are constantly present and are located between my spine and left shoulder blade, my left trapezoid, and my left chest between the breast bone and nipple. The pain increases when breathing deeply and also while lying down on my back. But the weirdest part of all of this is while lying on my back or on my left side, if I breathe in deeply I can hear & feel clicking or popping deep within the chest. This also occurs on the deep exhale.
whats the best pillow for neck, shoulder and back pain? When I lie down I get a sore neck and my shoulder can play up from time to time also which spreads to my back. Could you advise me of the best pillow that I could get please? Its a big stress for me sometimes getting a good night sleep!
Hi. I'm a 28 year old female who has suffered from chronic neck and shoulder pain since I was a teenage, which doctors have believed to be from being a swimmer. For many years, the worst of the pain (which has been a burning and stabbing pain) has been in my trapezius area. I've had multiple X-Rays and MRIs done, which have shown a spine that is flatter than normal, arthritis, and bone spurs in my neck.
Since Tuesday morning, I have been suffering with a horrible spasm in my shoulder and neck. It is causing nerve pain in the arm. I have been taking muscle relaxers as often as I can and have used ice packs. I sleep but am constantly aware of the pain. Any suggestions from anyone? When I get these spasms, they last up to six weeks and I normally go to work. This time, I just haven't been able to go to work. I'm just physically worn out and not able to withstand the pain. My Dr.
I hate anxiety... I'm obsessing about my neck/shoulder pain so much.. its all i can think about. And my obsession is "when will this go away?" or "it's not going away 100% yet, something must be terribly wrong!" It's played OVER AND OVER AND OVER in my head! Stinks! Ive gotten a couple of massages and it feels good... deep massage can make it tense sometimes. I'm just leaving it alone... and using ICY HOT at night before bed.
It sounds to me like your headaches and shoulder pain are coming from your neck--specifically the neck muscles and more specifically the scalenes, and SCM muscles, probably with some help from the upper traps. you get his prblem from forward head posture--quite common in today's day and age of computers. You should get a book by Clair Davies called the Trigger Point Therapy Workbook. Read the head & neck and shoulder sections and then go to work.
I have had severe neck pain for quite some time. It occurs 3-4 times a week and I mostly have it in the morning. Recently I have been experiencing a feeling of aches in both shoulders and arms. I have changed my mattress and pillows and have also adjusted my work environment to provide less neck pain but have not experienced any results. These severe neck pains also result in headaches. Does any know what this could possibly be? Should I see a chiropractor?
My doctor told me and it was hard not to sleep directly on that shoulder. oh and I got one of those neck support pillows which also helped.
I still have pain and stiffness in my neck but the most pain now is in my left shoulder and upper thoracic spine. There is no pain in my arm. I have been seen 3 times by the neurologist and administered botox which did not work. I travelled a 1000 miles to a pain clinic and marcaine was injected but only gave about 2 days of relief. I have been bugging the doctor to do a cat scan of my upper thoracic area but without any luck. They think its is coming from the neck and wont do the cat scan.
Hi matd, I broke my neck playing softball some years ago and have had issues with neck pain and shoulder pain as well as headaches periodically. I have purchased several expensive pillows that promised to relieve the headaches and pain but none of them worked. I found that if my pillow is flat and my neck well supported I sleep more comfortably and wake with less pain and headaches. There are a multitude of opinions on facet joint and cervical injections.
I now also have pain and have had pain for weeks in the front of my left shoulder and down into my arm pit. Hard to sleep at night. I'm at a loss how to convince my doctor that I need help. He has told me to keep trying stretches and see how that goes. Well, that is what I've been doing for 8 months now. Would an exploratory surgery be out of the question?
I have a chronic pain disorder, and presumably this neck/shoulder pain is part of it, but the docs I've been seeing, including neurologists, rheumatologists, and physiatrists, can't come up with a diagnosis, and the EMG, NCV, MRI, EEG, or other tests that have been done are all normal. Anxiety/stress is a possible cause, as are a variety of neuromuscular disorders, joint disorders, etc. Pursue a full medical evaluation to find out what, if anything, can be diagnosed.
A friend had recommended that i see a Chiropractor and or Osteopaths which i did and the headaches eased somewhat, however the muscle pain remained and was predominantly in the left hand side of my neck, this area always feels bruised and very tender and stiff (my ear to shoulder movement is very very poor in both dirctions) when i gently roll my neck in a circuluar motion there is a slight crunching and clicking sound in the left part of my neck.
physiotherapy is Best option for pain management, in Physiotherapy they use natural media and exercise to treat and it's work. My aunt also go through the problem like this.
