Hi.. I have neck/shoulder pain on my left side.. The pain becomes more when I push my chin on to my neck.. I have had several tests done, including several tests check if he heart is causing th pain - with doctors ruling out that being the cause..
Inhale also had CT and MRI scans done, with no cashed found by specialist doctors.. I am still left with no answers..
I have now had the pain for over 2 years..
The pain still continues.. Some days the pain is very mild and other days I becomes very strong the pain is
ranging from aches to sharp pain.. The area of pain is around my left neck down to my shoulder and chest
area. When the pain is strong it lasts for several days.. I seems to be in a cycle of strong and mild.. With no set time..
I have a pain slightly lower down than yours, it goes from shoulderblade to shoulder to arm and down to forearm, with tingling in my hand. xray showed "mild to moderate disc compression", which may or may not require surgery. What part of your body did they do the CT and MRI on? My Dr. started with an x-ray series of my *shoulder* - totally useless, as the problem originates with the spine.
It seems to me that what we see on tv and read about are very different from real life; I keep feeling like my Drs don't really care very much whether they ever figure out what's wrong. If it's not a simple thing to diagnose, and the pain can be controlled with a pill, that's good enough for them. I have to wonder if this isn't encouraged by the insurance companies.
Has anyone ever checked to see if you might have Thoracic Outlet Syndrome?
