I have suffered from neck issues since 1999. I was in a head on collison. They never did any type of imaging. I only suffered a few times a year with neck pain and muscle spasms. This summer, I fell of my bike. I have suffered since. My neck is always hurting and my shoulder and neck muscles are in constant spasm I spent many hours in the md's office for advice. I only recieved reassurance that it will get better on it's own. No interventions. Needless to say I switched MD's (I am with Kaiser)after I noticed that my right shoulder and right side of my neck muscle is bulky. My right shoulder now sits higher than my left. The new MD immediatly noticed and asked if this was congenital. After sharing my frustration and story she tried injecting a numbing and steriod medication into the muscle. She stated that the right muscle is full of fibrous tissue. It is hard to push the needle through. I am waiting for my MRI and the end of this month. I am scared. I have episodes where I feel like someone has wrapped rubberbands around my left arm and leg there is an intense throbbing followed by tingleing/ice cold. I have a noticable deformity of my right shoulder. I am in pain and now I feel like someone has wrapped a rubberband around my neck. Has anyone else had this type of problem with their shoulder and neck muscle? Will it go back to it's normal shape.
