I woke up with a stiff neck and shoulder muscle. My worry is why it was swollen up? Is that normal??
Shoulder pain: Clearly this is not "normal". You have injured yourself somehow. Perhaps you were lifting something that was too heavy for you ar you repeatedly exerted yourself to 100% with the shoulder and have and overuse problem. Ice it 20 minutes 4xday, take some anti-inflammatory (ibuprofen 600mg 4x day) and rest it. If its not better in a week OR it gets worse (Red/hot/more painful) see a doc. ...Read more

Perhaps you have become more aware and focused because of your pain and you notice it now. If the veins in your neck are being compressed it could cause the veins in your forehead to enlarge.

Pinched nerve: Because patients having cardiac problems can have these symptoms, you should have this ruled out. But the most common cause is an irritation of a nerve in the neck by a bone spur or herniation that can cause pain or numbness that runs down the arm into the hand. An MRI can usually show the cause of the problem if it does not resolve. Thank you for the question. ...Read more

Stiffness and muscle spasm in your neck and shoulder girdle can be due to various causes such as: stress causing you to tense up your neck/shoulder muscles; unhealthy position of neck/head when sleeping; carrying heavy back pack or shoulder bag and occasionally a pinched nerve in the neck can cause pain and stiffness.

The muscle between neck and shoulder is paining since 15 days? Please suggest cure or exersise. Can it cause to lose ur balance while sitting, walking?
If some neurogenic cause--i.e. Thoracic spinal nerve problems causing you to have severe muscle spasm/pain, it may cause your symptoms.
Otherwise, mild muscle spasm up at that area without underlying disease should not cause your imbalance.
Motrin and heat-massage may help. But I would consult with your doc for an evaluation to find out why you have the spasm/imbalance.
Good luck. ...Read more
