Weakness: Straightening is usually seen due to muscle tightening. It can be due to muscle guarding after an acute sprain such as whiplash or as a result of weakness. Weakness will result in the muscles tightening in an uncomfortable attempt to maintain posture.

Many causes: There are numerous reasons to have neck or and back pain and this requires a complete workup to find out why. However, the nerves that supply sensation to the face do not come from spinal cord in the neck but the lower part of the brain. You need to see a neurologist to workup your abnormal face sensation issues.

One yr out of lumbar fusion, I was wondering if a blown disc in your neck can cause headache and shoulder pain.

One yr out of lumbar fusion, I was wondering if a blown disc in your neck can cause headache and shoulder pain.

Headaches: Yes. A herniated disc in the neck can cause headaches and shoulder pain. If you have had problems in the lumbar spine then it is likely that you will have problems in the neck (cervical spine). Often the headaches and neck pain resolve with conservative measures. See your spine surgeon for evaluation and treatment. Huntsville is an outstanding city for spine surgeons. You are in a good place.

Can lower back pain cause neck and shoulder pain? How can a sprain on one place cause sprain somewhere else?

Neck and Shoulder: Lower back pain does not usually cause neck and shoulder pain. They may be related to a common problem or completely separate issues. Best to be evaluated to determine. A sprain is an injury to a ligament. A ligament holds bone to bone. Injuring one ligament does not cause a sprain to another ligament unless there is trauma to both.

I have three compression fractures in my back and now havin neck and shoulder pain running down my arm what causes this? None

I have three compression fractures in my back and now havin neck and shoulder pain running down my arm what causes this? None

If: If you have compression fractures, arthritis, and degenerative disc disease in your back, it's likely the same processes are occurring in your neck. When the nerve roots in your neck are pinched or irritated by bulging discs or osteophytes (bone spurs), you could have pain, numbness or other sensations in your arms and hands. (it's like having sciatica in your arms.) if left untreated, you could eventually develop weakness in your upper extremities. See your doctor about these symptoms. He/she may want to arrange an MRI of your neck. Good luck!

I've been having this pain in the back of my head closer to my neck, it causes a headache, some dizziness and today it made my left arm/shoulder pain?

Could be a: Simple trapezius muscle spasm from over stretching or a problem with the disks or joints in the neck. You're 28, the trapezius spasm/strain is more likely. Try cold packs to sore areas and after looking at an image of it online look for ways to avoid chronic strain during hunching while sitting near computer/reading/sleeping. If the pain doesn't go away in a few days, see your doctor.

Is it possible for someone with vasculitis to have an increase of monocytes? If so, what types of diseases would be the cause? Symptoms: fever, fatigue, severe back neck and shoulder pain, responds to high dose prednisone, decrease appetite. Negative bone

Yes,: Yes, elevated monocytes can be elevated in some types of vasculitis. Monocytes can also be elevated in chronic infections. I am glad that you have had a negative bone marrow study. High sedimentation rate can go along with inflammatory or infectious causes. It sounds like your hematologist is performing a thorough workup.
