Neck and shoulder pain on the left side

Common Questions and Answers about Neck and shoulder pain on the left side


Avatar f tn Now having headaches, sometimes-extreme pain and pressure radiating from my jaw and brain stem region, down the left side of my neck into my shoulder. Sometimes difficult to swallow. Have a hard "lump" that forms on the left side of my neck in back of my lower ear--gets smaller if I massage it, but does not go away. The muscles on the left side of my neck are tense and hard, almost like they are atrophying.
Avatar f tn What could be the cause of pain on the left side of neck going down my left shoulder into my inner arm and sometimes in my left hip? The pain can be felt the most when I move a certain way or reach to get something. At night time it is most bothersome, as it seems to be more painful. This pain started about three weeks ago and at the same time I started jogging, I am wondering if it has anything to do with it. But when I am jogging, I don't feel any symptoms at all.

Avatar m tn For 1.5 years I've been experiencing pain on my left side...neck, then shoulder, then wrist, and now elbow and shoulder. Family Dr. tells me I probably have arthritis and tennis elbow. I am not athletic and can't think of what I might have done to cause this. However, shortly before all this started, I did get really sick with vomiting and diahhrea for over a week. I suspected food poison.
Avatar f tn I have been wearing bite guard for last year and it got better but started hurting again this week really bad and having spasms in jaw and now my neck is killing me on the left side. Pain is going up the left side of neck and down left shoulder into arm. Have not had chance to go to doctor yet but am wondering if anyone with cervical disc problems has ever had it to affect temple and jaw area of face??? Am thinking maybe this isn't TMJ at all....

1690048 tn?1307555227 The gland below the skull toward the back of the head behind the ear on the left side is swollen. I can feel a circular lump back there. I have no fever or any other symptoms besides the usual pain. Thank you again!
Avatar n tn i dont have any dental problem. the pain is specifically on my jaw part and cheek part. my left shoulder and neck is affected too. the left part of my head is affected too. the pain is bothering me.
Avatar f tn I cannot lay on the left side of my head or it wakes me up throbbing. I have had this for 9 YEARS. I have had 4 MRIs,xrays, been to headache clinic been to pain clinics. I have had 4 nerve blocks and numerous medicines. Seen 2 neurologists. I have arthiritis in my neck and can't lay on my shoulders I have to have shoulders below my pillow. I go to a rheumatologist but that doesn't help. I'm all out of ideals and tied of pain every night.
Avatar m tn There is something called referred pain. In other words, the pain may originate in one area of your back and the pain radiates to another part of your back,. Both of us, my husband and I, go for regular adjustments with our chiropractor. Were you involved in a car accident of some kind? I ask this because you mention going to a physiotherapist. Are you aware that celebrex has been removed by some drug stores in Canada. Personally, I wouldn't take this drug.
Avatar f tn I have had significant pain in and around my trapuizius (sp) muscles from inbtwn my shoulder blades to the left of my shoulder blade and upward to right below the top of my left shoulder. It moves to encompass the entire upper t-region of my shoulders, neck, and shoulder blades. I do not have any real pressing issues with weakness, pain, or tingly sensations in my arms, hands, or fingers.
Avatar m tn I have tingling,numbness and some weakness in my leg, but I think its permanent damage from my back and unlike you it on the opposite side of the pain caused by my neck. Spondylosis is just a guess. What do your Neurologist and Surgeon think is causing your problem and what do they think about the correlation between the neck problems and the leg weakness? Do they think the surgery with help with your leg symptoms?
Avatar f tn When I look all the way up, if I support the back of my head there is no pain. The pain also go to my left shoulder now too but still mostly on my left neck. Please help and let me know what I can do to get rid of this pain. I can’t really go out for treatment now since the covid 19 thing. Ps. There is no pain if i keep my head straight. Thank you in advance for all your help, I am greatly appreciated.

Avatar m tn But now when I sleep on my side, the opposite arm goes to sleep and then it feels like someone is stepping on my hand.
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 White the pain injections, chiropractor and acupuncture helps and all only helps temporary. I am wondering if bearing the pain and doing exercises to strengthen my neck and shoulders would be a better solutions on helping my pain long term.

Avatar n tn Iam having the same pain back pain shoulder pain and neck pain all in the left side but it all started right after a breast biopsy and its been giong on for a yr.I have no idea what it could be if you find something out please post it THANKS....
Avatar f tn A little over a week ago I woke up with what felt like a pulled muscle in my neck, which causes stiff neck and pain in my neck and shoulder on the right side. Two days later, it had radiated up to my jaw and ear (still right side only) and sometimes would cause me to feel pain behind my right eye-sort of like a migraine. A day after that I had pain at the base of my skull on the right side alone with an almost burning sensation in my neck and shoulder.
Avatar m tn Over the years and as the pain has increased i have so many tender places along the band of muscles on the upper left side of my body including the shoulder (under and above scapula) muscles going to my neck, the band of muscles above the ribs, the arm muscles and hands, If i press any of these points it shoots pain everywhere on my upper side. So the muscle aches are concentrated to my shoulder,neck,pec and arm.
Avatar f tn Anyways, a few months ago I went to crack my neck to the left side, my palm under my chin and my other hand supporting the back of my head, I turned to the left, and cracked it, and immediately felt a SHARP shooting pain go down the left side of my neck towards the back of the neck into my upper left shoulder blade area. It almost made me cry out and I was afraid to move my neck back to normal position. But it passed quickly. It has happened a few other times since then, not constantly.
