Hi Everyone! New to forum.......neck/shoulder issues
Hi everyone! I have been experiencing some pain in what I thought was in my shoulder off and on for the past year.
I have a history with lower back subluxations and bulging discs (L3-L5). I spent a good 2 years working that out with a chiropractor and felt a million times better. Approx. 1 1/2 years ago I sneezed and slipped the disc at my L3. My insurance at the time did not cover chiropractic so I went for a few adjustments and when the pain was manageable, we parted ways. A couple of months later I started experiencing some odd sensations in my head but was going through a very stressful time so I chalked it up to anxiety. At the time I was taking a mild anxiety med and that seemed to relieve it so I let it go. Fast forward to Feb 2010, we bought a new home and I've been doing lots of small projects around the house. Painting overhead, etc. I started experiencing a stabbing and burning sensation in my Rt shoulder blade that seemed to travel to my neck and then sharp little stabbing pains in my head and face. Without going on so long that I will need to hire an editor and seek a publishing license to continue, my other symptoms are; occasional ringing in the ears, blurred vision in right eye, grating and grinding on my neck, sore scalp (at times feel like someone has pulled my hair out), quick electric feeling zaps that travel up behind my ears and sometimes feeling of pressure in my sinuses, slight dizziness and what feels like heart palpitations. I recently had a cervical x-ray because the Dr. feels like I may have some arthritis and possibly some disc issues in my neck. Naturally I've worked myself up to include everything from anxiety to a brain tumor so any insight you may have is greatly appreciated. Thanks! Kimberly
