Common Questions and Answers about Neck and shoulder pain with dizziness

I have been suffering from head, neck and shoulder pain for about 6 months. I changed chairs, pillows etc and improved my posture . My doctor prescribed pain killer and muscle relaxers. I never took muscle relaxers on a regular basis except every now and then when the pain is very severe . Last week, the pain was severe so I took muscle relaxers and stayed home. No improvement, 2 days later I woke up in the middle of the night trembling, felt nauseaus, dizzy.

2 year neck pain and shoulder area lost some motion in left arm This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/898547'>Numbness in finger tips</a>.
Holding the phone for a long time can cause a spasm in that arm and shoulder. PS I hate taking chemicals and take Naproxen only if my alternatives don't work.
since then the pain has remained with a sharp pain around my shoulder blade/neck area coupled with pins and needles in my wrist and fingers. my gp back in december referred me to a physio which is not proving fruitful as i believe it to be neurological - does anyone have similar symptoms or can tell me who is best to go to for treatment? thank you in advance?

My throat still hurts, I'm still dizzy, and now the pain is in my right shoulder and my lower back...Should I be worried?
I'm currently in physical therapy for headaches and shoulder pain, and have had some relief from the McKenzie Method PT. To paraphrase my doctors, dizziness has a zillion possible causes and it took lots of visits and tests to rule out the dangerous (and obvious) stuff. I still don't have a definitive answer for my dizziness, but what I'm doing seems to be working. Hang in there.
but until u get checked all we can do is speculate and u will drive urself nutz with worry over things like tumors and such. Relax and get to ur dr for testing.And keep us posted we will be here for support!!

Recently, I bent down and felt a pain in the back of my head and now have been having increased headaches and shoulder (left) discomfort. I am being treated in PT for cervical strain. For many years, I have had a symptom that will occur periodically. If I turn my head a certain way, I will experience tongue numbness and partial head numbness. It only lasts 20-30 seconds, but makes me feel sort of dizzy.
For 5 years now, I work on the computer all day and get a daily stiff neck, pain in the shoulder when I turn my neck, and headache which I see a Chiropractor for about every 6-8 weeks. In April 2009, I came down with flu-like symptoms for a week. In late April or Early May, I was at work and feeling normal when all of a sudden everything went grey and I began having severe dizziness and tinitus.
As time passed I tried to deal with it till I had a job where I had to look up while lifting my arms and that would instantly give me the worst neck pain, headaches and dizziness. It would last 2 or 3 days. If I continued to work like that despite the pain my vision would start to blur and I couldn't read things. For days it would feel like one of my nerves was being pulled on my head and necks right side. It would start in my temple then move to the back of the eye.
I feel like I'm getting the run around. The neck pain I have lived with for years but the shoulder and gripping pain in my upper arm is really ugly. My shoulder hurts when I move it but the gripping pain around my upper arm (about half way between shoulder and elbow) feels live a red hot band squeezing my arm. It causes me to double over in pain and I have very little use of my left arm on most days. The hydrocodone does little to ease the pain.
precipitation of head pain by neck movement or awkward neck positions, head pain when external pressure is applied to the neck or occipital region, restricted range of motion of the neck, and neck, shoulder and arm pain.

Please someone help! I've been having pain in my neck, back, shoulder and arm for about 9 months now. I've been in pain management after MRI results came back showing I have 3 mild bulging discs in my cervical spine. I also have a herniated disc in my thoracic spine. I've had many steroid injections, nerve blocks, and even a radio frequency procedure (which was not fun). I've had mild relief from the procedures but it's always back within 3 weeks or so.
Is this a serious problem that I need to get looked at, or can I get by with taking a pain reliever and continuing my routine. Is this a problem that will go away on its own?
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?

I was in a car accident about 4 years ago and my left shoulder and arm were jammed in the door. Ever since, I seem to get a lot of periods of shoulder and arm pain - sometimes it's pain, sometimes it's aching and others it's like tingly and shooting. Because I tend to worry too much, I always think it's signs of a heart attack and have ended up in the ER twice because of it.
Went to phisio, which helped with the initial horrible pain, but now I still have shoulder and upper shoulder blade pain, and also neck pain, occasionally along with it.There are times when the pain is still felt in my chest as well, although numerous trips to the hospital has assured me that mu heart is fine.(still a very scary feeling!)I also occasionally have a numbness in my left arm. Please help with suggestions!!! I've had an MRI done on my neck, and that was fine too.
After *numerous*, and I mean NUMEROUS Doctor's visits and chiropractic therapy, we never found a cause and the pain and sensations lasted 5 months! Honestly, I never thought they'd go away and I thought I'd have to live with them. But, lo and behold, other issues came up so my focus was on that stuff, and then the shoulder/arm pains were gone and never came back. Strange. Do you have any fixed positions you must be in with your job?
Along with this pressure in my left temple, I have had neck pain, pain in my left shoulder....and numbness in my face and legs. I have had episodes of anxiety and felt like I was going to pass out. Went to the Dr. after about a week of the same issues non-stop. They gave me a CT scan, ran blood tests.....and everything checked out as fine. The Dr. (who is new to me) suggested I go to the ER...I don't feel like I am having enough issues to warrant an ER visit.
I have had no heart problems since other than they occasional palpitation which are benign. About a week ago I started getting pain that started at my neck and shoulder all the way down to my fingers (mostly my middle and ring finger). Anyone know what this may be due to? I have no heart symtoms - no shortness of breath, no chest pain, no dizziness, etc. I had a complete heart checkup (ultrasound, stress-test, etc.) and all came back perfect. I also had an EKG (yeah, I know..
Hi, The symptoms of neck pain, dizziness and headache may be due to an injury to the spinal nerves during the Chiropractor’s neck twisting manoeuvre. Please go for MRI of the neck and spine and consult a neurologist for diagnosis and proper treatment. Please take rest and limit your physical activity till you get a proper treatment as it may aggravate the symptoms. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
My wife, now 47, a has been having neck pain and shoulder tightness for more than a year, She also frequently has numbness in her little finger and ring finger on her right hand. She sometimes gets dizzy. For the past week she has been naseus in combination with the rest of it, and very tired. This seems to be related to knotted muscles at the outer edge of her right arm joins the shoulder blade very near her underarm, and also to emotional stress.
