Neck pain with horrific shoulder pain

Started by deniselynn on 10/06/2013 7:59pm

Just wandering whats going on have neck pain off and on for the longest time and more on now had shoulder surgery about 11 years ago and about a year and a half ago shoulder pain came back for awhile left again and has come and gone now both have been going off and shoulder pain is constant for strait week and noticed loss of muscle on shoulder and it's right and im right handed. Went to orthopedic and pain was so bad in shoulder asked for a shot, so got the shot in shoulder mri scheduled on neck for this Friday and appt with shoulder dr. also scheduled. Pain is bad on shoulder and behind it and neck is still hurting but nothing like shoulder now. Any clues on what's going on since I have to wait for mri and results and what can I do to relieve pain. Thanks already been through 2 back surgery's so not very happy still recovering from second fusion on same area so not ready for another surgery and start a new part time job tomorrow and all I can think of is what am I going to do if I have to go under the knife again and this is my second chance at a job first one lost a week in when they found out about my back so I'm scared. Any Advise much appreciated.

Your pain seems quite intense and certainly needs attention. The MRI results are definitely worth waiting for and it can reveal much. If no serious pathology is found you might want to consider seeing an Osteopath. A general assesment of your posture and certainly of the bio-mechanics of your cervical spine could help reveal treatable problems. Also some good advise on lifestyle habits could help prevent repetative strain injuries if this is the problem. Finally, some proper exercise tailored to your needs could also help manage and prevent your problem from coming back.

I don't know wat they used for bone graft but there is a bad product they use it's if you don't use your own bone they use this product that supposedly helps to grow your bone and it's been proven that its not working what happens is your bone will over grow and will create many many more problems the company that was there making it was actually sued and lost their case and still continue making their products and doctors continue putting it back into people's spines its something you need to look it up if you would like to know more

Neck pain is horrible to go through and it's more and enough after surgery. I can't imagine that pain. My aunt has problem with neck and so much pain in neck. She used Physiotherapy techniques to mange pain and it's work.
