Avatar n tn I have had social/ general anxiety my whole life but for the last 6 months or so I have had headaches and severe migraines along with extreme neck and shoulder pain. My neck is so stiff and my shoulders ache almost constantly. A lot of days I lay on the couch and watch TV all day because I can't function. The pain makes me not want to do anything. I was wondering if these symptoms are being caused by my anxiety?

Avatar f tn I've decided that too much stress and pain in my neck and arm is what's keeping me up all night. I did sleep last night, but here it is past 2am and I'm still up and thinking how I have to work by 9am. So, instead of going to bed I'll just watch a movie and take a shower. Got to sleep sometime, right?
Avatar m tn Feeling dizzy on standing up could be due to fall in blood pressure (called postural hypotension), ear problems, cervical spondylitis and inflamed muscles in the neck (sternocleidomastoid). The latter two can also cause pain in the area between your neck and shoulder. Severe acidity with gastric reflux too can cause dizziness. Please discuss with your doctor. You will need some tests for a confirmed diagnosis. Take care!

Avatar m tn I have been worked up for cardio and been cleared twice with stress test, ekg, night in the hospital, and enzymes. What I have is actually in the neck and jaw. the left side of my neck hurts toward the side (main muscle/tendon going down from the jaw to the shoulder, and under my jaw, from what I can tell is inside my jaw. there are ridges on my jaw towards my chin that hurt, and also the space in between my jaw hurts. Don't know if it is glandular or tmj related. odd stuff.
Avatar m tn s the way my skin feels a day or two before my neck goes all wonky. The pain stays on the right side of my neck, mostly, and it stiffens enough that I cannot turn my head for a few days. Any experiences like this? I mentioned it to my doc several times, and he thinks it''s a repetitive stress injury, not much I can do about it, according to him.
Avatar n tn My neck area longer than that. I was always told my neck was due to stress or something or another. Now I thing the shoulder and neck are maybe all in one. The doctor I saw today did a xray and said there is some arthritis in the shoulder but not alot and she believes it is my rotator cuff. I kind of suspected thats what it was. I can only lift my arm partially straight out and I dropped a coffee mug yesterday because it hurt to hold it. Putting my coat on normally is a no go, it hurts to bad.
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.

Avatar f tn These help with pain, but I have developed an itchy, unremitting rash on my right shoulder and should probably stop taking meds to see if any of them are causing it? I tried glucosamine but the pain and cracking remained and sometimes my head hurts on the right side too. I also have Hashimoto’s (TPO antibodies over 1,000) take 75mcg Levoxyl per day. There is a 1.2cm nodule on the right side of thyroid- it was ruled benign after biopsy.
Avatar n tn I have pain inbtwn my shoulder blades that radiates above my left shoulder blade and into the left side of my neck. Its my trapizius (sp) muscle. Wouldn't hurt to check out if its the same thing your going through. Massage and ice and essential oils along with a chiropractor is what's helping mine.

Avatar f tn I also have neck pain, right shoulder pain and numbness in my arms when sleeping, also assuming it was a circulation problem. I also went to a Chiropractor for my neck and shoulder pain, thinking they were all related, and it turns out I have carpal tunnel syndrome. The numbness wasn't related to my shoulder at all. That was a whole separate issue. My neck pain was caused from years of poor posture ( I tend to jut my chin out) and stress. My shoulder was from a work related strain.
Avatar f tn 3 weeks ago I started having severe pain and stiffness in my neck and upper back , 9 days ago it changed and I now still have a sore neck but the biggest problem is the severe pain in my shoulder and shoulder blade area, under arm and arm all the way to my wrist(all right side). I also have major twitching all day long, cramping, tingling, heavy pain feeling and a dull constant ache with some sharp pains as well. This pain is constant however at night is always worse.
Avatar n tn I agree that you should see your doctor and have some tests run. I had EKG and other tests, found out mine was all stress/anxiety related. Sometimes it's hard to tell if it's serious or just stress.
Avatar f tn Yes, my roommate (male, 51) and I both suffer from migraine syndrome and often have neck/shoulder pain that triggers the headache. I have a couple of protruding cervical discs and have suffered two traumatic brain injuries with loss of consciousness. I find that reducing stress - easier said than done - can help, also avoiding straining my neck/shoulders and strengthening the muscles.
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. 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.
