NeckAnd shoulder pain spreading

Started by 116807638655996... on 04/06/2016 7:52pm

At the end of December I started to have really sharp pain over my left shoulder every time I took a breath. About 2 weeks latter my neck and both shoulders have tighten up to the point I cant turn my head. Since then ive tried every medication I could get my hands on to dull the pain but nothing has touched it, also ive been going thru physical therapy and now I can move my head. About a month ago ive had two faucet shots in my c5-c6. no kind of relief. My right foot and both hands go numb when ever It feels like something is pushing on my shoulder blades. I'm not sure if its in my head but it feels as tho the pain is slowly spreading down my back. Worst pain comes at night same as the tension in my shoulders and neck. I'm lost, The doctors seem to be lost since they sent me to pain management for more faucet shots and soon a nerve fusion. Anyone know what way I should go ? really trying to stay away from pain clincs because I'm not trying to catch a habit , just want my life back.....

Please, please go to a neurosurgeon! Even if it doesn't require surgery, this is the doctor who can order an MRI and tell you what to do next.

I agree with bonnierae please go see a neurosurgeon they are the best doctors to dal with this kind of thing and they can order an mri which will show what's going on and to me it sounds like the sooner you get an mri the better
