Thank goodness I finally found a good forum! The pain started in April of 2008. I work at a warehouse. I put a light box up on a shelf, right above my head. I felt a pinch around my left shoulder blade/spine. Went away. 2 days later my back locked up between my shoulders and I could not bend or twist for an hour at least. This happened 3 more times in the next 2 days. I went to work and reported it, honestly. I explained this was the only incident that clearly stood out in my head as unusual. I had mentioned it to a co-worker that same shift so they said she was my witness. whatever. anyway, I went to their doctor every 2 weeks for 3 months. He would push on my back and say it was a strained muscle and would heal. i also still had the constant pain in the same area i felt the pinch and my shoulder/upper arm has had a burning sensation that has not gone away yet. My back was always popping and my headaches were constant. Workers comp denied and i didn't fight because anything could be going on. Then, my elbows started hurting and my hands would go numb all the time (and still do). Everything feels really heavy. Had an EMG, I have pinched ulnar nerves in both elbows. My neck/lower head has been hurting almost since this all began. Orthopedic doctor ordered MRI of neck. I have herniated/degenerative disc and psoratic arthritis. The past 4 weeks my back has been locking up constantly and I can't get comfortable when i sleep. Ortho doc went ahead and did x-ray and I have a 25% curvature. He is sending me back to therapy, again. The other night I vomited. When I did I got an extremely bad shooting pain right below my neck (on my spine) that went all the way down both arms to my fingertips. My elbows and shoulders hurt awfu. If you've had your tonsils out you know how bad that feels? well mine were taken out less than a year ago and this pain was 10 times that. I have never felt that bad. What caused that? Why is everything hurting? Should I go to another doctor? Also, in the past year I've been diagnosed with high blood pressure, diabetes and endometriosis. I also have PCOS. Sorry this is so long. Any insight is greatly appreciated.
