My doc is convinced that all my pain is caused by muscles (extreme cases of spasms and rigidity) - And through this experience I have learned to respect what problems the muscles can produce....but my ridicular pain symptoms are getting much worse and I have a tough time putting these symptoms onto the muscles
pain in my elbows - and from shoulder to shoulder. I am awaken by my hands and arms going numb. Esp the ring, pinkie and thumb. I can feel small bumbs as you feel down my neck along the spine - and these are not muscle nots - i have plenty of those.
Could this be from muscles or from the herniation at c56 and the bone spurs. And can these things progress - last mri of neck was jan 08? If another mri was taken would it be a waste of time...don't know how quickly things can change.
Like I said the doc even said to me - 'don't let anyone convince you that your pain is from these cervial findings" I mean he is really convinced this is muscle...but the way i feel tells me different - but could this all be muscle?
baffled - yet once again!
