Avatar n tn I also have been suffering with shoulder and neck pain, and even upper back. I was wondering if the two could be related. I was tested for hormonal problems, thyroid problems, myalgias, and anything else they routinely test for when they take your blood. I was given a low dose of antiepressant to help me sleep at night so I am not awakened with the pain. This helps at night, but I am getting weary of the constant ache.

212591 tn?1247106094 I am SVR for five years and have developed progressively worse shoulder pain on both sides, but worse on the right. Sleeping at night has become a total challenge, and it feels like the whole shoulder girdel is under intense pressure and pain when laying on either side. It is similar to, but worse than the residual pain that I still feel in my hips, lower back, and ribcage (costochondritis), which all come and go, enexplained and unprovoked, from week to week. No solutions yet for any of it.

Avatar f tn I'm 29 and full time student and nurse. About 2 weeks ago my neck started hurting pretty badly and then I got severe headaches. I tried taking everything from tylenol, motrin, to vicodin and nothing helped. It continued to get worse and moved down my back. When I point my chin towards my chest it feels like every muscle from the back of my head to my tailbone is tightened and pulling. I went to my primary doc and he thought it was occipital neuralgia causing headaches.

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.

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 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 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 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 f tn I keep getting knots in my neck and shoulders and both my neck and shoulders ache on an off, any reason as to why this keep s happening?
Avatar n tn You're right, inflammation of the shoulder wouldn't explain the neck pain. Shoulder pain can refer to the mid and upper back, however a more likely scenario would be that you might have a nerve that's slightly pinched in your neck. That would explain the upper back and shoulder pain, because nerves in the neck refer pain to both those places. All you probably need is some anti-inflammatory meds and sometime in Physical Therapy to stretch and strengthen those neck muscles.
Avatar f tn For two months had swollen lymphnode in my neck left side . went to Dr. And they claim blood work is all ok and that there is a pen tip spot in there but said nothing is wrong .
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 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.
