I've recently been diagnosed with Facet Joint Syndrome (and before that it was an annual tear in C5-6). It all started about a month ago when it got really bad. I can feel the spasms from my neck shoot down into my shoulder blades. But the most nagging and annoying symptom is the muscle heat thats hot to the touch. It starts every morning. My neck heats up, then the shoulder blades. By the end of the day my entire back feels like its on fire. Going to sleep will help take it down eventually.
Does anyone else have this symptom from a disc or facet injury in their neck? My doctors don't have much of any explanation for it and I havn't been able to find any relief.
Would be helpful to know that I'm not an anomaly and if anyone has any advise on it i would really appreciate it.
