Why dose my right shoulder close to my neck hurt when I breath in hard?

Why dose my right shoulder close to my neck hurt when I breath in hard?

Muscle strain/spasm: As you inhale deeply, you expand your chest wall...And doing so, you move shoulder blades up and out, thus pulling on the muscles attaching to the upper and inner areas of the shoulder blade. If these muscles are strained somehow (common for people working on computer keyboards for long periods), they can be sore when you breath in deeply.
When in doubt, have it checked out. ...Read more

What could it be? I have pain on the back of my neck. The back of my neck hurts quite a bit. I don't feel any lumps or anything. It hurts specially on the right side, pain goes on to my right shoulder too. I'm taking Advil for the pain, it helps for a fe

Right: Right sided neck pain is probably coming from your facet joints or muscles in your neck. I would recommend rest, hot shower and gently stretching your neck and continue taking advil (ibuprofen) as directed by your primary care doctor for couple days. Stop advil (ibuprofen) if you develop any sided effects such as stomach pain, bleeding, kidney problems or allergic reactions, but not limited to these problems. If the pain does not improve over the next couple days you should see your primary care doctor. Physical therapy is the usually the initial treatment for neck pain. Good luck! ...Read more

My lower back is hurting on my right side making me very restless. Along with my neck and right shoulder. What could this be?

Muscle pain: This could be a simple as muscle spasm. Muscle spasms can come from stress, or muscle strain from lifting heavy things or strenuous activity. Something that might relieve the pain of muscle strain or spasm are warm compresses, Epsom salt soaking baths, home stretching exercises, massage therapy, and over-the-counter pain relivers. However, if this pain does not resolve on its own, see your doctor. ...Read more

I experience burning in right shoulder that goes up the right side of my neck?

Probably neck: Burning pain with radiation into your neck in my experience is radicular pain from a neck source until proven otherwise.

Sharp pain on the side of my neck to my right shoulder! Horrible pain, why does this happen?

Maybe muscle spasm: Your neck and upper back muscles on that side could be in spasm -especially if your ability to turn your head has decreased. You can try gentle stretches, ibuprofen/Advil 400-600 (with food) every 4-6 hours for any inflammation, and warm compress to loosen the spasm or ice if you have sustained an injury to that area. Would also see your doctor if symptoms do not improve in the next day or two. ...Read more

This pain may be easy to treat by your physician but it should be evaluated. There could be a number of other conditions causing your symptoms as well. ...Read more
