I normally post here about my ddd and lower back pain. Three days ago, my neck and shoulder started hurting and today Saturday, it is hurting so bad and pain medication is not touching it. I had neck surgery in 2004 due to herniation. It hurts when I try to turn my head and just hurts all around neck and shoulder. I am scheduled for epidural monday for back but I am thinking I will cancel and try to find out what is wrong with neck. Does anyone here have an idea about what is wrong with neck maybe it has to do with ddd.
