I am not sure where to post this...but I have had neck, shoulder pain for years. I recently started having pain on the left side and it is usually on the right side. The pain feels different on this side than it usually does on the other. The pain has been almost constant for 4 weeks now. I have been to my family doctor, and to the ER. The pain is a sharp shooting pain in my collar bone, left arm and in certain fingers...it hurts so bad that I can't concentrate on anything else...I cant raise the arm above my head because of the pain. I also have a puffiness close to my neck and right above the clavicle bone, there is also some puffiness under the clavicle. When I lay down it hurts worse. The pain is so hard to describe...because it is shooting pains, but also a weird pain in my clavicle and left chest area. When I move suddenly the pain hurts more in my clavicle and left chest. The have done CT scan, chest xray, shoulder x-rays. I just had another MRI, one of many! There is something on the MRI that I was curious about...It says, Slight increased spinal cord signal is noted at c5-c6 level...what does that mean?

I can type the results of the MRI if anyone wants to see it :)

Thanks so much for your help :)
