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

Thank you, it does not make me feel better knowing that you or anyone else feels my pain.. it actually breaks my heart. I would not wish this pain on my worst enemy. As with my pain, I hope you find relief soon!
