    4 year neck pain

    My neck pain started almost 4 years ago, and it continues now with new pain in my shoulders (mainly the left) and the back/bottom of my head. I have had many tests with no diagnosis, mainly just confusion from the docs. Nothing seems to help except codine (I am codine sensitive) but no anti inflammatory seemed to work and steroids just made the pain worse.
    I even ended up in the hospital with a stomach bleed for 2 weeks in which I lost 40 lbs (yes, in 2 weeks)!! Due to all of the meds I was on, I am currently not on any meds, as that was only a year ago and I am terrified! I have since began substituting max freeze ( a topical gel) which helps most days. I am so lost and frustrated on what is wrong with me... all posts and questions/help are welcome. Thank you

    I think you must switch to a new doctor. If you live in Texas, you can visit OrthoTexas. I got my back treated from them.
