Wondering if this has happened to anyone else. About 6 months ago I was shoveling a very large snow storm at my house and while shoveling over a large snow bank I was getting stabbing pains in my neck just to the right side of my spine. It continued to happen but I had to remove the snow so I continued. The pain is shoulder high. I went to my primary care and he had me do a few stretches and he said I was having muscle spasms, I left there with a prescription of valium and ibuprofen. The pain has never gone away and I didn't go back to my doctor because I don't feel as thought he takes the time to listen he just throws pills at me when I go. I had told him it didn't feel like muscle issues but he insisted I did, which I may. My pain is consistent now especially when extending my arm forward; driving my car, typing on the computer. I have also been experiencing popping sounds in my neck at the exact location of the pain. Yesterday I was driving my boat and hit a wave and had pain almost like I had been stung by a bee. The pain is tolerable with ibuprofen however I don't want to take it everyday I know it is bad for you. The pain doesn't come instantly with any specific movement. I don't know what the cause is please if any one has any info let me know THANKS!!!!
