I have had neck problems forever. Waking up and not being able to move or look side to side because the pain was so bad I thought I would be sick. This only happens however after days of doing lots of activity and lifting things, etc. Otherwise my neck feels ok, but there is still a stiffness and a feeling if you drew a line down my neck and accross my shoulders where the two points meet.
Lately I have had a tingling and numbness in my right arm and my center back is starting to feel a little pain when I move and bend over. Its getting worse. I know I need to go to the doctor but I dont have the money to go and have them tell me that there is nothing to do about it.
My lower back feels fine. And I dont have pain most of the time, it is uncomfortable but I dont need to take anything for pain. Its more of a stiffness right now in my neck and then just a slight pain along my center spine when I bend. Any help you be greatly appreciated. I am a 31yr. old female, slim and otherwise healthy. I did have an accident when I was way younger in which I fell 15 feet onto concrete and landed on my head which I am SURE wasnt great for my neck, as well as one or two small car accidents in which I dont recall being hurt at the time, but I am sure that didnt help either. Anyway I am just curious if this could be the symptoms of something really serious.
The more I think about it, my right arm may be a little weaker than usual. I also drop things alot because my hand seems to just open. I never associated this with anything but being clumsy, but the more I read the more I think that it may be associated with this neck/back issue....
