Avatar n tn I have TMJ and it is known to cause neck, shoulder, and headaches and face pain. I don't know if this might be related to your problem or not. But I use a mouth piece at night and it has helped reduce my morning neck stiffness and headaches. You might want to go to someone who has practice in TMJ or check with your dentist.

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.

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 m tn While it is possible that you sustained a muscle strain due to your golfing, it is likely that you may have some degenerative disc disease in your cervical spine. DDD is a normal process of the wear and tear on our spine as we age and increases with additional stressors such as repetitive movements. The symptoms you describe could be related to abnormalities in your cervical spine.
Avatar m tn I am unsure if anybody can help me with this. For around 25 years I have had the most horrendous left shoulder blade/neck pain. I have had physiotherapy, seen a chiropractor, had endless x rays, had aromatherapy, had acupuncture, taken endless painkillers…the list is endless. Also, 21 years ago my physiotherapist said that I was …. "born with a flat spine"!? Every treatment I have had has brought zero results, freedom from pain or respite.
Avatar n tn it's painful to turn my head to the right or stretch my neck from side to side. the pain seems to be in the area of the trap muscle and is also in the shoulder and move down the arm. at times it's quite uncomfortable and neither percocet nor tramadol give me any relief from it. I am wondering if this could be a pinched nerve. I haven't seen my doctor yet as I am hoping it will go away but it seems to be lingering. has anyone experienced anything similar to this?
Avatar f tn About three weeks i hurt myself at work i was helping another girl get her paient back to bed and he didn't satnd as well as she said he could and two hundred pounds of dead weight riped down on my left shoulder. Sence this has happened i have had very bad pain in my shoulder, neck arm and back, i can't move my arm at all without tears my neck i can't even turn it. And i have very bad numbness in hand to the point where it's hard to hold on to things. Also i have been getting bad head aces.
Avatar n tn This may or may not be caused by a sudden hard pull up workout wherein I came to a complete dead hang, allowing for as much of a stretch as possible (potentially pulling the latissimus dorsi apart?). At any rate... I have an intermittent pain, off and on all day long, that can last for as little three seconds or three-plus hours--usually closer to the latter.
Avatar n tn I seem to have muscle strain in my shoulder/neck and upper backside of left shoulders which has started on getting from sleep. just i can feel tightness in my neck and shoulders, i start medicines from rheumatologist. but after few days a swear pain started in my forth arm and the two fingure small and middle got unconscious /unconscious and still have swear pain in arm.

Avatar f tn I went to the ER last night due to pain in my shoulder area on the right side. Doc said it was a rhomboid strained muscle. I have had this pain off and on for a little over 2 years, but it just became worst in the month of Sept and Oct 2008. Oh my God, it has been really bad. i have had no relief and it is really bad in the mornings when I try to get up for work. I have been sleeping with a heating pad and using it day and night. Ive been reading that folks are using a ice paks.
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 m tn Shoulder pain may be caused by capsulitis, bursitis, tendonitis, injuries/ tears, joint subluxation/ dislocation, arthritis, periostitis etc. The elbow pain could be related to the neck and shoulder pain or could be caused due to an unrelated reason like epicondylitis, tendonitis, dislocation, fracture etc. It would be best to get this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Meanwhile you may try immobilizing the arm and giving it adequate rest.
Avatar n tn Treating the underlying muscle (or whatever the origin) is, should improve your symptoms. More rarely, neck pain can be from a torn artery in teh neck. The compromised artery can result in ministrokes causing brainstem symptoms. This is less likely if this has been going on for years. Your doctor will be able to judge if this needs any followup in your case.
Avatar m tn Eventually the anxiety got better after alot of different meds---and I didn't notice the floaters so much and i hardly ever notice the ringing in my ears anymore. The neck and shoulder pain and headaches started almost 13 years ago and progressed to all over pain. We've been calling it fibro for years, but I have a number of endocrine issues that I am working on getting corrected and some deficiencies that I am working on, also.
Avatar n tn I workout a bit and swim/walk/ i play golf in spring/summer once to twice a week however im just pushing myself through the tightness and pain. Quality of life is down and working is a chore. I'm right handed and i can see in the mirror my body does look crooked. Left shoulder is sometimes lower and most of my pain goes into the left side.
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 i have been dealing with shoulder pain for the last 3 years. X-rays, MRI's, and numerous different types of doctors have been unable to help me with my shoulder pain. Are you familiar with RSI's? Repetitive-Strain Injuries. Our best guess is that i have an RSI in my shoulder. RSI's are commonly known as carpal-tunnel syndrom or tennis-elbow. An RSI is a build up of scar tissue which causes the affected muscle to not glide against the surrounding muscles smoothly.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn In the meantime you can purchase anti inflammatory gels that you can massage into the shoulder and shoulder blade. The message may also help if there are any tight muscle knots in that area. Any tendon and muscle tears do take a few weeks to heal. She may find a heat or ice pack helpful.
Avatar n tn To Haleys Mom, Probably precipitated by the above mentioned resultant atrophy, my shoulder area is extremely sensative to muscle imbalance/strain. I have suffered with shoulder blade/armpit pain and radiating arm pain for about 10 years, off and on. Although I do have cervical disk fusion and other neck issues, I was told that what was causing my arm pain are trigger points in the shoulder blade area, particularly in that under the arm area of the shoulder blade.
Avatar n tn Two weeks ago I woke up with the terrible pain in my left shoulder and lower neck. I work out a lot and have been under unusual stress. Bed I was sleeping in was terrible. I went to ER fearing a heart attack. All clear on that account. Doc told me I had a pinched nerve or severe muscle strain. Got hydrocodone and it helped some. Went on a 5 day cruise thinking it would be relaxing. Got a very vigorous massage - very bad decision.
Avatar n tn It sounds as though it is muscle strain. Muscle strain can cause a burning feeling. You problably are right handed and use it the most. The position and motion is over working and pulling. You can take Tylenol and Aleve, starting at the same time, then just go by the bottle instructions for each for the following dosage time. That should help with the pain and inflammation. Heat will help. Heating pads is what I usually use.
Avatar f tn I felt fine at the time, but later that evening, my left shoulder and neck got stiff. About 15min later I got a headache behind my eyes and the pain in my shoulder was shooting down my arm, making my fingers tingle. It was almost unbearable.
Avatar n tn It sounds like that his neck is the cause of his problem. It can be due to neck musculoskeletal problem (from muscle strain to spine problem) causing pain and tension that triggers the migraine attack. Chronic daily headache needs the following treatment plan: 1) Physical therapy of neck 2) Intravenous infusion of headache medications: e.g. steroid, depakote, magnesium, toradol. I would recommend him to see a neurologist as soon as possible for best available treatment.
Avatar m tn Saw a Sports Medicine trainer where I work and we went through exercises and stretches to make it better. He agreed with the SCM strain and added damage to my Brachial Plexus. Took it easy for on the shoulder, did the stretches, pain went away for roughly 2 weeks (early March), started swimming easy (Freestyle and Breaststroke) a couple days a week for roughly a half hour maybe less. Did a bit of Rock Climbing as well (Indoors).
