I've visited this forum recently to help me realize I'm not the only one with chronic back or neck pain. We'll let me start off by explaining . About a year ago, after taking a new job where I'd sit and stare at a computer all day, I started waking up with a burning sensation that would radiate from my upper back between my shoulders to my neck. It was a constant pain. Along with that pain, I started getting constant headaches on my forehead and mostly on just one side of my head.
I went to my doctor and they assumed it was sinus issues and sent me home with medicine. Well, that didn't really help so I decided to go see a chiropractor after researching online. I went and was told after some X-rays, that not only do I have a straight neck, my spine is curved forward (I use to hunch over as a kid) and my lower spine is slightly curved to the side. My chiropractor didn't seemed too alarmed by this and reassured me I'll feel better after starting treatment. After some adjustments. I definitely started feeling better.
I stopped going, which I know I shouldn't have, because I was right back a year later.. With the same symptoms. I started again and it does help but I'm just so frustrated.
Along with my constant neck pain, upper back pain which are both usually tender to the touch, I get random head pains that aren't even headaches. They're more of just dull pains in random areas of my head. My chiropractor says it's a pinched nerve.
I just feel like I'm really young and along with the pain, came anxiety because I'm worried it's something else. I have a fear of getting a disease.
Has anyone else been diagnosed with a straight neck, or has had similar symptoms? How do you cope? Does it eventually go away? I'm a nervous wreck whose in constant pain.
