Avatar n tn Six months ago, I strained my muscle between my neck and shoulder, after running. Sometimes, the pain started at the base of the skull and at times my shoulder. I went to the doctor and took a xray that did not show a dislocated or herinated disc. I went on vacation and did not run but swim. I was free of pain. I have started back to running and thepain is back. What could be wrong?

Avatar f tn I am having the same trouble with my neck, it starts in the back of my neck goes along my shoulder and into my arm. Has even caused some numbness. I was diagnosed with FM last summer but pretty sure I've had it much longer than that. I recently had an MRI to find out what is going on with my neck, shoulder and arm. I was thinking that it is part of the FM but more severe in that area.
Avatar n tn Symptoms (in general from herniated discs in the cervical region and lumbar region) suggesting the need for urgent surgery includes muscle weakness, loss of bowel or bladder control, loss of sensation, particularly in the pelvis and severe and progressive pain. This will need to be decided upon by your PCP and/or neurologist. Lastly, where is your pain? Is it associated with the bulging disc or is it caused by the actual car wreck?

Avatar n tn you need to consult an orthopaedician or a neurologist to examine you and do certain imaging like MRI spine, nerve conduction velocity studies to check if there is nerve compression, x-ray of the shoulder joint to check for any fracture, trauma etc. Muscle pull or excessive muscle strain in shoulder, vigorous exercise and weight training could also cause these symptoms. Hope this helps. Take care.
Avatar n tn The tingling is now gone, but I still have upper back/shoulder blade pain and arm pain. The pain ususally starts in my upper back, then under my armpit, then my upper arm feels tight and starts to hurt and the pain then radiates down the front of my arm, under my wrist and sometimes into my hand. And I still feel as if my arm is weaker. Last night I had some muscle twitches in my shoulder and when I lean back to stretch my upper back my shoulder does hurt some.
Avatar m tn I have pain in between the shoulder blade of my left shoulder when i put my arm up and stretch to the right i can feel the pain between increasing,also i have problems in sitting without support to my neck ,i get neck pain neat to the top part of the shoulder and the point where neck joins the spine.Also i feel that my lower left shoulder is unrelaxed when sitting,always causes kind of tied up feeling. I had gone to a doctor x rays of the neck and shoulder were fine.
Avatar m tn For almost a month now I've been waking up every morning with a painful neck muscle. It's located in the back of my neck on the left side just above where the shoulder and neck meet. It's most noticeable when I turn or move my head in certain ways. It's at its worst first thing in the morning and is less noticeable throughout the day. I've tried changing pillows, heating pads and changing what position I sleep in.
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 f tn Went to emergency with severe pain in right shoulder, up into the neck and down the right arm (woke up with it). Have been on 500 mg. Naproxen , twice daily, for 3 weeks, and 10 mg. Pms-cyclobenzaprine every 8 hours. I'm still experiencing pain plus some new tingling down the arm. Should I be going back to my doctor? It seems this is taking an unusually long time to get better.
Avatar f tn I recently pulled a muscle in my neck/shoulder with medication and pain killers it seemed to be getting better then 3/4 weeks ago i noticed a lump sticking out near my clavical i was xrayed and showed nothing broken it has got worse and is now quite painful could this be a tear or something else im stumped and in a lot of pain .
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn For the past one year, i have been taken to the ER a couple of times where i was treated for pinched nerve, neck pain, muscle strain, sprained neck and back and muscle spasm. The pain on my neck and shoulder is getting worse. Sometimes the pain on my shoulder shoot down my arm and my arm swells up. There will be tingling, numbness, weakness. Could someone please tell me what is going on. Before the injury, i was not having any pain but now, i cannot go a day without pain Please help.
Avatar n tn Then it started being consistent. The pain traveled up to the top of my shoulder and my neck and sometimes down my arm. A little background: I can pop my shoulder in and out of place by myself with no pain. I could do that since I was little. During summer, (June and July) I had x-rays and an MRI done of my neck. The doctors thought I could have something on my spine by my neck causing the pain to travel down.
Avatar n tn Sometimes the pain goes over my shoulder into my back between the shoulder blades. I have had tons of Cardio test and have pasted them all. It feels like the muscle are always "clinched" or flexed. It seems to bother me more when I do faster runs then long runs. It has become a constant pain that flairs up on occasion. Any suggestions?
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.

975514 tn?1324997938 Is it possible to have a goiter you cannot detect? I am having the unfortunate situation of having to self diagnose. I have been to dozens of doctors, have Grave's and Hashi's in my family- and have lots of health problems. Last year I had a shoulder surgery that has left me in more pain. I am wondering now if I may have a thyroid problem, undetected. I have posted a few times within the past couple of days. I finally have an endo appt. scheduled.

Avatar f tn They will be able to do nerve conduction tests to find any nerve that might be under pressure from something that cant be seen on an x-ray.The extreme cold makes the nerve pain worse in my neck,head and shoulder all the way down to my fingers.The feeling is like being pricked by a thousand needles and feels like I am standing by a bon fire,with cramping and muscle spasms,numbness.If this sounds like anything that you might be going through,you ought to go see your family doctor like I said.

1534233 tn?1523388856 Have u had ur trapizeis (sp) muscle checked? I too experience similar pain and have had my trapizeis muscle messed up among other things.
Avatar f tn Can TMJ cause tingling in your back, neck and calf? And can TMJ also cause pain in knee joints? I know this sounds strange but my ENT thinks I have TMJ and has referred me to a specialist even though a few of my symptoms are neurological. I have already gone through the gammet of testing including MRI's of head and neck and blood tests. I also had all of the ENG tests. Everything is normal.
Avatar m tn I have had an MRI of my shoulder and x-ray of my wrist, and neck. (4 years ago) NO MRI OF SPINE, HEAD, NECK although the Dr has ordered an MRI of my neck this month. The bones and joints appear healthy,. nerve testing indicated my nerves were working ok (3 years ago) No tests have been done on my arteries and no bone scans. Physiotherapy and chiropractor..not intensive enough to make a difference. Deep tissue massage helps ease muscle pain and stretches also help to ease the pain.
