Neck and shoulder pain back

Common Questions and Answers about Neck and shoulder pain back


Avatar n tn McB is right. Goodness knows, all kinds of problems can cause neck, shoulder and back pain and the number one reason, believe it or not; as I am told by my doctor, is poor posture. That is in the absence of any structual problems in those areas, like degenerative changes caused by arthritis, disks problems, overuse of those muscles or even muscle tension.
Avatar n tn I dont know if the back and shoulder pain are related, but because both are on my left side, I thought they might be. Has anyone experienced these symptoms, or know of anything they might be?

Avatar f tn I've been having pain between shoulder blades, mid back for over a month now. It feels like something is out of place. I've started seeing a chiropractor but after about 8 visits, its not any better. It starts when I walk for a bit, do dishes or iron clothes. Does not bother me sleeping. Any suggestions appreciated.
Avatar f tn my pain is in my neck, back, and right shoulder blade. When I lay in bed the pain is worse, it even keeps me from laying down at times. what is it?
Avatar m tn I wonder if it was a mis-diagnosis or half-diagnosis, and it makes me question whether the nerve pinching issues is actually at the shoulder RATHER than the neck. Regardless, the issue is no longer in my neck and shoulder, but in my neck, shoulder, and back. It's difficult to even pinpoint the pain. It's like one big, sore clump spawning from mid-back to shoulder to neck. DIFFICULTY SPEAKING: One of the red flags I'm experiencing is difficulty speaking.

1710955 tn?1309446473 I had an MRI done and it showed two bulging discs on my C5/ C6 area, a tear in my tendon, along with impingement on the nerve. The pain radiated down my left side of my neck, into the shoulder and down the left arm to my fingers. It was the most excruciating pain ever!

Avatar n tn "Pain goes way under your shoulder blades and the muscle on top of your shoulders up to your neck has pain that is debilitating at times. (or stay as tense as can be)" My opinion is that you mainly suffer neck trouble due to soft tissue injury around neck spine,it can lead to conduct and deep pain in shoulder blades,maybe sometime referral to hand.All of upper back symptom was due to unbalance of lower back which you still had.
Avatar n tn I was also told after the MRI and CT scan that 1 of the 6 screws in my neck is backing out and C6 and C7 did not fuse and there is movement which is causing me pain down my neck upper chest right shoulder and arm so they need to do the surgery and take out the screw before it comes undone and puntures my esophogaus they will put a longer one in and then cut me from behind my neck and kind of fish wire all of the vertabre together to ensure proper fusion . My lower lumbar..

1534233 tn?1523388856 Last week the pain comes in my right shoulder also and across my back between the shoulder blades. I suffer from ventricular bigeminy and when this happens my shoulder seems to hurt too. My doctor insists my heart is fine, I've had a lot of tests and all are normal apart from event monitor which showed up the ahrythmia. As soon as I got up today the burning between my shoulders was there across my back. I went to a walk in centre and was examined.
Avatar m tn Most of my pain started in the top shoulder and the muscle going from the shoulder to the side of the neck. Shortly after that the pain went to my armpit and the back of my shoulder. Now I have pain/burning/tingling down my arm and into my hand, my arm often feels like it's dangling by a string and I have pretty bad neck pain as well. An MRI showed I have some bulged discs in my neck.
Avatar m tn In the last year or so, I have developed pain wiht typing. The pain occurs in the my shoulder, my neck and my upper back, especially in my shoulder blades and under my arms in the rib area. Also the pain seems to be worse on my right side from the side of my neck down to my right shoudler and shoulder blade. I also get a knot in the middle of my back. I have tried PT to strengthen my back, but with no help. The pain kept returning. I have tried antiinflammatories and muscle relaxers.
