I have constant shoulder and neck pain for years?

Joint arthritis: Most often, chronic neck pain comes from chronic inflammation and arthritic changes in the facet joints of the vertebrae of the neck. The pain frequently refers to the shoulder and even down the arm. Anti-inflammatory medications, and when needed, injections of the painful joints of the neck can help quite a bit. Ask your doctor about these options. ...Read more

I have low back, knee, hip, shoulder, and neck pain for 5 years now im 21 mri show hip impingement and one hip higher than other any soloutions no pt?

Arthralgia: You are too young to be old, A leg short by less than 1 inch is within normal. Hip impingement is worrisome for gung ho athletes. If you are obese loose weight. Best Rx for low back pain is exercise. What you need is exercise (if doc OKs it) if only to bring out more specific complaints. No passive PT. Pilates could be a start. A trainer is good. Build your stamina and get well. ...Read more

Shoulder & neck pain for long time (years). Looks only muscle pain, tried physical therapies &massage,helps sort period. Looking for long term solutio?

NSAID: I suspect that you may be having muscle and shoulder pain as a consequence of referred pain arising actually from some arthritis changes in the neck. There are no cures. OTC NSAIDs such as Naproxen and Ibuprofen may give you upwards of 30 to 60% relief of your symptoms. If you have no problems that would prevent you from using them them consider a NSAID trial for 2 to 4 weeks. ...Read more

I'm a smoker for 15 years I'm 30 years old I have upper back pain on my shoulder blades and neck pain can it be lung cancer ?

Sounds muscular, but: I would still see your PCP to discuss cancer screening possibilities, have a full physical, and discuss smoking cessation options. The sooner you quit, the lower your chances of cancer, and the more likely your lungs will return to pre-smoking health! Good luck ...Read more

I have a constant neck pain (it goes from my shoulder up to the right side of my neck). If feels good when messaged. What can I do to ease it?

Sounds muscular pain: and using a Heat pack 2-3 times for 20-30 minutes can certainly help; with gentle, of gradually increasing durations, exercises would help. Seeing an orthopod would confirm there is no other cause for your symptoms. Taking some Aleve (naproxen) or Advil would be helpful as well. ...Read more

Going on about 8 months I have had a aching pain between my shoulder blades that causes neck pain & constant headache. No OTC helps the pain.

Going on about 8 months I have had a aching pain between my shoulder blades that causes neck pain & constant headache. No OTC helps the pain.

Headaches/Cerv disc: Persistent pain deserves an evaluation. Based upon age, i would suspect a disk herniation, or occipital neuralgia causing muscle spasm/tension. This may then create the muscle tension headache scenario. Nsaid's may actually cause headache in some. Try tylenol (acetaminophen). Pursue cervical pt. Robin mckenzie book "treat your own neck" is $8.32 online. Formal spine or neurology eval if no better. ...Read more

I have been having left shoulder, armpit and neck pain. It sometimes radiated down the whole arm. What can it be? It is constant!

Why do I have constant neck pain? a dull aching mainly in the back of my neck that sometimes comes down to my shoulder and down my arm.

Dull Ache Neck: Hello. How far down your arm does your symptoms travel? Any history of trauma to your neck (falls, motor vehicle accidents, etc.). Would not expect narrowing around your spinal cord b/c of your age. It's possible that you could have some bulging pressure in a disc fueling your neck, shoulder, and arm symptoms. Might benefit from short course of Toradol 5 days or Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack 7 days for pain. ...Read more

My 15 year old sister wears a 34h cup and she has been having neck pain and shoulder pain. Is it to early for her to get breast reduction?

If symptoms, then no: If her breasts are not fully developed yet, then there is a possibility of needing additional surgery in the future. If her symptoms are bad enough, it may not be worth waiting. She should see a plastic surgeon, with parental consent, to evaluate if she should consider surgery. ...Read more
