Chronic Neck Pain
Lady_Hutch posted:
It all started one afternoon almost 4 years ago. Nothing major happened that I can blame the pain on, it just started to hurt. Over the years I ha e seen many specialists, had many tests done and no one found anything specific that should be causing this pain. I even had a pain management doctor do a nerve deconstruction which only caused a "dead spot" (for lack of a better term) below my neck, as well as pain down a single nerve in my right leg. I finally got fed up and quit going to doctors as I ended up in the hospital with an acute gastric hemorrhage due to being on pain meds too long.
I now have an added pain that just began within the last 3 days in my shoulder. I can't get comfortable, nothing helps and I am losing sleep! I have been tested for many things, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. No name has been put on this, so please help if you can! Thank you in advance
