Avatar f tn I blame the boobs, the bigger they get the more they weigh on your neck and shoulders area, especially where you're at in your pregnancy with your milk coming in and all. Try getting a good, supportive wide strap bra if you think that might be the cause.

Avatar f tn I have been having some bad pain in the right side of my neck. I have always had some neck problems but it hasn't been this bad in awhile. On top of it all my right shoulder is hurting and so is my right arm. My arm muscle is so sore and feels so heavy and tight and I haven't done a whole lot. I have taken Tylenol and tried biofreeze but nothing is working. Has anyone else had this happen? I'm 9 weeks right now.
446156 tn?1275863176 I'd lay down and get a heating pad for your neck and shoulder to help loosen up those muscles. Every now and then stretch your neck a little bit but do not over-extend it. Just stretch it as far as it will go in all directions.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar n tn I'd follow up on the liver enzyme situation. How much do you weigh? Are you eating well? Taking vitamins? Resting whenever you can? Do you have a fever? Is your belly OK from the C section? With a new baby it's so hard to take care of yourself but it's a must after a Csection. Sounds like you are have been through a lot and are run down. With a new baby we tend to be putting everyone else first and out health can suffer. Forget everything you can and take it easy and rest and baby yourself.

Avatar n tn I took botox injections in the neck and shoulder plus muscle relaxants and some narcotic pain medication as needed before getting pregnant -- and imitrex for the headaches.

She also gave me the option of tramadol.
1571146 tn?1399913292 Probably you could write any symptom with bfp in google and it will show you at least one person who had it, but there were MANY who got stiff neck right around the same time as I am. Either way, I thought I should write it down since I didn't last time. Man I am not talking about a little bit of pain-- I am really suffering! Last time It was so bad by 7dpo I was in tears... I'm nearly there now. I need to try something for relief.

5875748 tn?1431566603 Turns out my daughter had a lot of risk factors for it (over 8lbs, was transverse during labour and needed to be turned, cord wrapped around her neck) and I had a long second stage of labour (at the hospital for 13 hours my water broke 2 hours before I got there), I had an epidural,AND they had to put me on pitocin because labour was going slowly and my contractions were intense and irregular. So I'm hoping if he's not transverse that it will fix a lot of the other problems as well.

Avatar n tn I also have been experiencing this fizzing sensation in my neck and head, and it mostly concides with hunger and happens after my stomach growls. I have also had a twitching in my left eyelid. My wife has also had this for many years. I am amazed at how many people have posted comments with the identical symptoms - I thought I was losing my mind. I wonder if a visit to a chiropracter would help. Has anyone had any back pain/discomfort when this happens?
Avatar n tn 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. Treatment for cervicogenic headache includes physical therapy, medications, behavioral therapy, and other modalities.

Avatar f tn I have an unstable shoulder girdle with associated neck injuries and my symptoms worsen considerably after ovulation, too. The instability of my shoulder girdle increases which in turn increases my pain levels so I usually need to almost double my pain medication in order to function 'normally' during this time.
Avatar n tn I have the same symtoms, lump in my throat, tightness in my chest, sharp pain and neck pain. It's been more than a month and I already did the Barium swallow and I was advised that it is GERD, I am taking Nexium but I still feel the symptoms and I am so worried...

Avatar f tn I had a severe pain in my upper arm shoulder neck shoulder blade. If I moved my arm the wrong way I would get pain where you are having the knot. It turned out that I had frozen shoulder or they call it adhesive capsulitis. I went to a shoulder specialist who helped me with physical therapy. Have you been doing any physical activity that may have pulled a muscle or tendon? Working with your arms? Playing tennis? ...etc? Can you go to your doctor?
211940 tn?1267884866 My ortho said the xrays showed arthritis in my elbow and some in the shoulder. I have had two shots of corizone and the pain on the inside of the upper arm has now increased almost as badly as the outter upper arm. Please, someone out there must have an answer, there are too many of us.
Avatar f tn Neck and shoulder pain is fairly common during pregnancy. However, it should never be ignored. Early in pregnancy, it can signal a complication such as an ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy that develops outside the uterus). This is considered a medical emergency and needs to be treated immediately. If you are in the early stages of your pregnancy, I would recommend speaking to your doctor right away.
Avatar f tn What muscle could be pulled that would cause pain in both above the chest and my armpit/shoulder? Or what ligament could/would be torn? My doctors don't know what to do with me anymore. I've tried Ibruprophen AND aspirin as well as Naproxen, but I'm not sure if they work seeing as how the pain comes and goes so quickly anyway. And, do pulled muscles last for more than 7 months? It's not a pain I have every day, and I seem to excecise okay, too.
