    neck and back pain.... any idea what it could be?
    feyes34 posted:
    I have been suffering for about 3-4 years now with back, neck and shoulder pain. It started in my neck and at times I could not even turn my neck at all. Then it went to my shoulders and down my back. Now the pain goes down the back of my left leg and my hands sometimes get numb. I can only sleep on my side for so long and end up tossing and turning all night. It hurts if I sit or stand for to long. I have been to the doctors, had x-rays, physical therapy and nothing seems to help. The doctor told me the pain in my left leg was a pulled muscle but did do an ultrsand to rule out blood clots. I lost my insurance and have not been back to the dr.'s in about 2 years...still in pain and have no idea what could be wrong....any suggestions or ideas what could be wrong ? Thanks

    An MRI would have confirmed or ruled out what your condition might be. It could be a pinched nerve. Like myself. It was confirmed via an MRI and EMG.
