Neck pain joints

Common Questions and Answers about Neck pain joints


Avatar f tn I had it done and it is amazing how much it has helped. Gone from taking megadoses of pain killers for the neck and shoulder/back pain to letting my almost full bottle of pain killers expire. The nerves do grow back but hopefully the protrusion has receded enough to not be afecting the spine/nerves. ALSO, found that this pain is not uncommon for those bending down to read the computer screen for hours on end. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn i am an 18 year old male and in the summer of 2007 i noticed that i had stiffness in my back and neck and with the stiffness there was severe pain. i also noticed that my back and neck crack alot. i went to my doctor and got xrays done on my back and neck and he said he found nothing wrong. he did no other tests other than the x rays. over the last several months ive noticed pain and cracking in all of my joints, including fingers, toes, back , neck, ankles, wrists, hips , elbows and knees.
Avatar n tn Could having a chiari 1 malformation possibly cause shoulder pain? My dr. at Univ. of Iowa doesn't think so. He thinks my shoulder pain is due to arthritis in my neck and a doctor here in Bloomington, IL, feels my shoulder pain is caused from some bulging/herniated discs and arthritis in my neck.
Avatar f tn I have contined to have neck and shoulder pain daily, some days worse than others.....but my neck started popping about 2 months ago and hasn't stopped. No matter how slightly I move me head it pops.

Avatar f tn I have been getting cracking noises in my neck & head when I turn them. Any one have any ideas what this might be? Or the cause of this? No pain involved.
Avatar f tn Hi I am a 28yr old female and over the course of last week I have been getting sharp pains in the right side of my neck. I've taken painkillers for this which the pain hasn't really responded to and since then I noticed by chance that I could feel a firm lump/swelling at the right side of my neck. Also the skin has been getting itchy there and I've been scratching it. Any ideas as to what this could be? Thanks.
Avatar n tn Are you having any symptoms besides pain? Any swelling or redness? Is this pain in your joints or your muscles? Does it get better or worse with activity? It may be time to go see a doctor and see what he/she can do for you.
Avatar n tn then I was told it may be infammatory Arthritis I take antiinflammatories and pain medication. I recently had a neck CT scan as most of my pain radiates from there. I was told today that my C2 and C3 have fused together. I have never had surgery but about 18 months ago I suffered a neck injury at work, when I went to the hospital I was given anti inflammatories and a muscle relaxants as I was told i pulled a muscle, and told to take 3 days off.
Avatar f tn The last two weeks I have had pain in all my joints all over my body.(ankles, hands, feets, knees etc.) It is so painful It hurt to walk to stand. I can hear my bones cracking. I can not sleep when I lay down my left arm go to sleep and my fingers turn cold and heavy. My whole body feel like a rock. I turn all night trying to sleep. Most nights I feel like I am having a heart attack or stoke.
Avatar f tn what can a person do that has pain in his arms from his neck to his shoulder to his elbow to his wrist?
1040744 tn?1253048126 I have Joint Pain in my fingers, wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees ankles, neck and sometimes hips. I also experience stiffness, and pain in the muscles surrounding my joints. I had all the tests run for Lupus, RA, Lyme Disease , Vitamin D deficiency and they all came back negetive. I changed doctors and am having her do all the tests again ( just in case). She also indicated that it could be a thyroid issue or an unseen infection. She is testing me for thses as well.
Avatar f tn Okay, so for a little over a year ive had this burning stinging pain in both sides of my neck (Its almost by my shooulders) and ive had a million tests done, blood work, two MRIs of the brain and neck,EMGs, and ultra sound of the vains in my neck (Because sometimes when i stand up and stretch my eyes go blurry and i almost fall) Urine fesis samples. All of these either come back normal or only slightly elevated.
712314 tn?1303098090 I have had an eating disorder for almost 9 years. I was wondering if it could cause lower back and neck pain be from? It hurts the most when i'm picking up something heavy, or bending over, and when i try to sit up or lay down in bed.
Avatar m tn Yep especially my shoulder joints and neck. Going to chiropractor now, to see if that helps. My arms get numb when I lay in bed and read too which is strange. Be of tx for 61/2 months.
Avatar n tn Docs should put you on a physical therapy program, offer pain meds, or possibly suggest surgery to stabilize your neck. You can also get cortisone shots in the neck to ease pain. Physical therapy is partly designed to strengthen the neck to protect it from the normal jolts of daily life, and also keep the joints "well-oiled" so they won't seize up.
Avatar n tn When you crack your neck or any other bones/joints in your body you are releasing gas pressure from between the bone. Sometime when the bones or joints are pushed it the pressure pushes down on a ligament or tendon giving you pain. It's ok to crack your neck, or any other joint in your body. Maybe you should try seeing a chiropractor for help and tips on cracking.
Avatar f tn Can anyone give me any advice on what they do to combat neck pain. I'm in agony with it and have been given no pain relief from my doctor.
Avatar f tn I was having some stiffness and had some neck pain before. But New Years Eve I was on my feet a lot and it started out hurting up the back of my ankle then within the week both joints on either side of my ankle were swollen. Red dots and blue on the worse side. Its just now going down. And my elbow has been hurting for a month. Bottom line has anyone else had anything similar?
Avatar f tn hello on my back upper right quadrant ( or behind my shoulder) i have a burning/throbbing/dull pain, and sometimes it feels like im putting pressure and it travels to the side of my neck. i don't know what to do i tried medications like ibuprofen etc and it doesn't help i also try icy hot ointment and it doesn't work either. What could it be? please and Thank you.
