I have constant and severe posterior neck pain. Also pain in both shoulders, some down both arms. I also have neck swelling on both sides of my neck at the bottom where shoulder meets the neck above the clavicles. I have been to many doctors and none can find anything wrong with me other than mild DDD at C6-7. I cannot continue to live in such pain, all meds I have tried do nothing. Any advise would be appreciated. I would especially like to know what could cause the swelling?
After I was rear ended I had a lot of similar symptoms to yours. I had bug swollen bulge on the back of my neck, my right pinkie was numb, I had sharp, short flashes of pain down my arm. The ER gave me vicodin and sent me on my way. I was still in a lot of pain and insisted on an Xray. They found my cervical curve was reversed. The doc told me it would be a while before I felt better. A neurologist referrred me to get an MRI and they found I had an atypical broad based hernitation at C5-C6. An MRI could help you figure things out more possibly help you. I also had some vertigo feelings and migraines started after my accident. I have found Flexeril, cold ice packs, Accupuncture, massage and percocet helped me. I also attended an 8 wk pain management class (with my Dr's referral. Good luck-Kari98
