Unbearable neck pain

edited 10/10/2013 - 2:08 AM in Neck Pain: Cervical
My neck pain is different than most, Most of the time I am fine maybe walk thru the store, to the mail box over about 10 mins my neck will start hurting at about the jaw on my left side Unbearable neck pain - stabbing and burning ( the only way to get the pain to let up is to apply pressure and /or knee down or put ice on it ) or lifting even right after sex. This pain started in my upper left arm and sholder and moved into my neck. Do not understand what is going on. Have been going to the doctor for over 5 yrs, no one can find anything. have had my heart check over and over it is fine. Have had many MRI's done and x-rays, disc-o-grams, Not sure where to turn. Many years ago use to go to a Vascular Dr., And had many artery mouformations removed from my arms and legs over the yrs in my past. Maybe something has formed in the neck area ?

    then perhaps you might want to start again at your Primary Care Physician. Many times , since they are generalists, that can isolate what the problem may be.
    To me, that doesnt sound like a spinal related item, but I am not a doctor and only doctors can give you that type of response.
