Hi. I've been experiencing pain for a while. It started with a back spasm that was a knot in my mid back about a month ago, then moved to my lower back for a week or so. Now, I've had pain in my upper back and neck for about a month. The symptoms are very stiff neck if I sit in a chair for more then 30 minutes, shooting pain the goes from my upper back to my left shoulder if I turn my head to the left. I have dull pain in the area when not moving. If I raise my left arm over my head and move around, I hear clicking in my shoulder and in my upper mid back. The stiffness in next doesn't occur unless I'm sitting. It doesn't feel worse after I sleep. The pain is pretty constant throughout the day. I never had this type of pain before. Doesn't feel like it's getting better but also not getting worse. I used to lift weights quite a bit, a little over weight now and probably have had posture and sit a lot for my job. Looking to see if any doctors can give me an idea of what's going on or someone that may have had similar experience. Cold packs don't seem to do anything, stretches haven't been working and massages didn't do much. Any thoughts?
