Has anyone here ever had excruciating neck pain that got progressively worse but didn't have any signs of problems on xray or mri? Here is why I ask.
I am 27 yrs. old and have had neck pain that has been getting worse over the past year. It used to be just annoying. However, now the pain in my neck is so bad that I can no longer drive more than 20 minutes without wanting to cry, I can't sleep do to muscle spasms going up and down the sides of my spine, the bones of my neck feel sore and tender, I have a horrible electric pain that periodically bolts down the center of my spine, and another pain that radiates down my left arm, the fingers on my left hand go tingly all the time, and oddly enough, I feel like the more I move my neck the better I feel but the second I stop it starts to hurt again. However, after getting an mri and xrays done nothing shows up! Is it possible to experience this much pain with no evidence of a problem? I am at my witts end and am looking for a solution. Any ideas?
