Arthiritis back of neck to left shoulder.

Started by qurdina on 11/14/2010 2:00pm

Just had an xray and was told to take care of my neck from a specialist.an mri is due in 10 weeks.the dr told me there is nothing to do about it,but I'm not convinced.not sleeping well for the last 12months.taking aspirins and catafast,One question.are there some sort of exercises as my specialist instructed not to turn my head in any direction.My left arm is getting shockwaves till the palm and this happens mostly lifting my head backwards.

hi...i too have shoulder and neck pain. i find that if i keep my hands in front of my lower chest and do the DOG PADDLE as long as i can it helps the pain. i also ice in between my thumb and forefinger and the pain miraculously eases!!!

Couple of months ago had a one month TCM (CHINESE MEDICINE) and lately I was feeling ok,but a couple of days ago it was back to square one,I spent $230,and was adviced to have another course,but for me its expensive,now I'm waiting,to have an anterior cervic fusion ,free,from the best maltese surgeon here in Malta,as this surgeon gauranteed me that 70% of the pain will vanish.
