To make a long story short, I developed tingling in my left shoulder blade around September 2013, which I attributed to moving heavy objects from the attic in preparation for a cross country work relocation. Then the tingling developed into muscle spasms and muscle knots. I went to my GP in November and he ordered a chest X-ray which came back negative. I continued to have the tingling and spasms despite taking NSAIDs and flexeril.
I was then referred to a neurologist who ordered a brain and cervical spine MRI which came back negative(Suspected MS due to other neurological issue like muscle fasciculations). I have really bad health anxiety and he determined it was most likely stress since I was going through a rough time. The pain has continued off and on since that time but with the last few days the pain seems to have worsened after a ski trip last month and is now hurting on the right side of my spine as well. My spine also feels like it is bruised on several vertebrae and the muscle pain extends out from that point. Also, when I bend my neck down as far as it can go I get pain in my muscles down both side of the spine. I have scheduled another appointment with my neuro for this Tuesday.
The pain in the muscle and spine only hurt when I press on them or when I am upright leaning against something. Lying flat seems to be beneficial. Has anyone experienced this combination of symptoms?
