I have been dealing with this issue for about 3 years now. I'm 18 now. I started getting headaches that would last random amounts of time (from as short as 45 minutes to as long as 5 days). They also ranged in severity from mild (like seasonal allergy headache) to so severe I couldn't stand / felt sick. Along with this I had a stiff neck and upper back/trap area pain. I had this for about a 14 months and then it just sort of disappeared for approx. 3 months.
After the time of no pain, I started to get these same symptoms again for another couple months. Then Had maybe a month and a half of no pain. Then it came back but slightly different. I began to get upper back pain, pain along scapula and spine of scapula, shoulder pain (AC joint?), forward shoulders, lordosis, lower back pain, tight rhomboids(?not sure), tight neck, tenderness/pain if I touched the middle of my back (spine in Thoracic area) and in my neck area (Cervical Spine area). It is worse it the morning when I wake up (The earlier I wake up the worse it is). Get's better as the day progresses and then towards the night I'm in pain again. There are periods of a few weeks where it's unbearable/severe and then it gets better for a while (but still in 24/7 pain) and then Severe again.
I have had blood work done, the results were fine/normal. I had x-ray's done: Show Minor scoliosis of my Lumbar spine, and minor kyphosis and degeneration of my thoracic spine. The doctor said this was "normal". I saw a rheumatologist who said they think it is muscular pain and is suggesting an Mri and a Pain management therapist.
I have tried: Deep tissue massage, Acupuncture, Physiotherapy, Regular massages on a daily basis (from family for temporary relief)
