Common Questions and Answers about Neck and shoulder pain natural remedies


Avatar f tn I try my best to avoid prescription meds and prefer natural remedies. I also use ultrasound and ice treatment methods. What methods do you use?
Avatar f tn I also have pain running down my neck and shoulder and into my jaw. Most of the time it feels like its inflammed. It even hurts to turn my head sometime. I have been going to a chiropractor for this but he is not sure what is going on. I was sent for a brain MRI 3 years ago because they found traces of papiledema in both eyes. They diagnosed me with pseudotumor cerebri but I don't know if that has anything to do with the pain in my ear, head, neck and shoulder.
Avatar f tn Yes, the ulnar nerve, the shoulder and the neck are related. The ulnar nerve originates in the neck. You probably need to do some neck stretches and posture related exercises. Just see your Doctor for a referral to a good Physical Therapist. No Chiropractors.
Avatar f tn I vaguely remember when someone was posting back pain between shoulder blades..I am experiencing a funny achey back pain next to my left shoulder blade in the middle of my back. Is this familiar to anyone? Just started a few days ago, doesn't seem to want to go away. Thanks Chatter Haven't been on in awhile.
Avatar f tn my problem is anxiety attacks during the day feeling im gonna have a heart attack. it started after i took a pill for my neck pain and send me to er with fast heartbeating. i guess i got scared and now i cant shake the feeling off.
Avatar m tn ve seen a sports medicine physician and a physical theropist who believe this to be nerve damage because after much time the pain, very intense pain can only be described as her neck, shoulder and down her arm. It is a stabbing shooting pain that feels like 'electricity' through the affected area. The PCP has no prescribed Gabapentin for nerve pain but so far hasn't worked well. We are at a loss because the PCP has all but given up.
Avatar n tn The natural remedy to balance your body systems and be pain free, is to do pranayam.The pain is indicating that the system is not functioning and killing the pain for a short period, is not a solution. Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after 1 minute. Kapalbhati -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically.
Avatar n tn About a month ago, I began waking up with my upper back very stiff and sore. The pain would eventually work itself out and I would be left with my usual muscle aches. A couple of weeks ago, I began getting a tingling feeling spreading from behind my right shoulder blad, into the back of my upper arm, and even rasdiating around to my chest area. It feels like there's a vibrating muscle massager inside of my skin- but without the therapeutic effects.
Avatar m tn thanks for the imput Tuck. Well the theory is, as far as the doc (internist is concerned) is that my brain is still out of whack and interpreting pain when it's not there. Signals between spine and brain. I basically hurt my neck/ spine and since they can't see anything wrong, they conclude some kind of imbalance. SO the cymbalta for them is a god send as far as I am concerned both in terms of pain and ocd/gad.
Avatar f tn Castor oil worked for me.
Avatar n tn It is so bad that I cry daily and with 4 children which I had natural, I feel that I have a high tolerance to pain. My left arm and my neck up to the jawbone goes numb at times. The shoulder pain never goes away. I keep ice on it a lot plus take pain medicine and a muscle relaxer but nothing helps. I have tried patches, creams, massage, etc. A little History: I have not done anything to hurt it. I had (left) thyroid cancer in 99 which spread to my other thyroid.
222322 tn?1271022838 t know any more about the cyst until my ultrasound June 1st. Are there any other natural remedies that work? According to drs, this cyst has a much higher chance of being benign than malignant, and I really want to avoid another surgery. I also want to try to get pregnant sometime this year (hopefully, after I get a job teaching, I want to plan a baby for next summer if possible). Does anyone know of anything else I can do to get rid of this thing?

2112967 tn?1339022368 Contractions started out irregular/infrequent and are now becoming more frequent and regular (mostly been around 10 - 20 minutes apart and only a few here and there are lasting around a minute long), as of 4 weeks ago my OB told me that (after a check) my cervix was still closed, I wasn't effacing yet, but my lil guy was head down (and my OB could just start to feel the head), as of 3 weeks ago my OB told me that I was 60% effaced, wasn't dilating yet, and the baby's head seemed to
Avatar f tn In my suggestion home remedies with Neck Pillow and Neck Traction treatment is best extension during therapy with a disc pumping action. Follow these remedies twice a week.
Avatar m tn F - neck fusion - surgery for C5,6 and C6,7 in Jan and Oct of 2008. Since then, my neck pain has doubled that of the pain before surgery and it has persisted ever since. I have tried nearly all known pain remedies including, massage, physio, Reiko, acupuncture, nerve root blocks, cortisone injections etc and lately, as a last resort, I have had this RFL, called Radio Frequency Ablation in the US I believe. I am told the relief could be immediate, or within 2 to 6 weeks.
Avatar m tn wake with headaches and severe neck pain. Weakness is horrible - sometimes arms just ache and hurt and just have to quit doing anything. Current use aspirin and muscle relaxers as allergic to most pain meds. Can this be serious or will it just may take years to get better? MRI showed increased signal at C5/C6m but fell in driveway a month after MRI - had to have xrays on army and shoulder as couldn't even lift coffee pot. any advice on how to get it better would be great.

Avatar n tn About 8 months ago we moved and I think I may have pulled a muscle in my arm. It started getting pains and such and extended to my shoulder, neck and back area. This was on my left side. About 6 years ago I hurt my back at work on the same side but it healed after only a bit of physical therapy. For the past 8 months my pain on the left side of my body has gotten worse. Sometimes it extends down to my left leg and foot like a shooting but pulsating pain/ache down the back of my leg.
Avatar n tn I think someone mentioned this before about cracking joints My neck cracks whenever I turn (and especially tilt) my neck. When I put my ear to my shoulder a crack will sound and often more that one crack at a time. I also notice when I turn my head from side tio side, there is a grating sensation where it feels like my neck bones are rubbing up against each other. It's not painful but weird!
Avatar f tn In february 2011 I had to have neck surgery from c-3 to c-7 fusion on each disk and a plate with 7 screws. There was pain after the surgery and nerve damage in the neck and both shoulders and arms. I have not been able to work since then nor have I been able to do any of the things that I did before the accident. I tried everything that I was asked to try, therapy, stimulator, hot pads, nothing worked. For the last 6 months my pain level has increased.
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.
Avatar f tn i have had shoulder and neck pain for the past 3 years. initially it was less but became very serious that things on my right hand dropped just like that and had the neck region swollen. i was given pain killers by the doctors. i had gone for physiotherapy sessions which were very painful. they suggested accupressure and i attended the allotted sessions and had a lot of relief but the pain has returned very severely. kindly suggest me the needful steps to be taken.
Avatar n tn I would get sharp and shooting pains that went from my neck all the way down my shoulder and down my arm and through my right thumb and forefinger. The sensation is like if you put your arm on an electrified fence and held it there. If the pain gets exceedingly worse, it would be time to go see a neurologist or someone who specializes in spinal injuries or surgery.
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.
