Chronic, Severe Neck pain with neurological problems...Help!
Over the last 9 months, I have been experiencing severe, chronic neck pain associated with terrible headaches, jaw pain, and even trouble breathing at times. Most of the time, the pain is dull, heavy, aching, throbbing, and pounding. Other times it can be sharp, shooting, stinging pain. The pain radiates into both of my shoulders, collarbones, and even the shoulder blades- and even down into where the upper back starts.
My arms feel fatigued and totally exhausted with even minimal exertion. I can only write for about 5 minutes, then my right hand starts to seize up, I lose muscle control, and it goes spastic, then I have allmost no power to clench my fist. I also have been getting pins and needles in my left hand for up to 4 hours at a time. I get muscle spasms in the neck, but more so in the soft tissues surrounding the collarbones, shoulders, biceps, and forearms. I have over-active or over-responsive reflexes, like my head suddenly jerking to the side for a second while watching TV, or I'll be using the computer mouse, and my arm will just bang into the wall.
Is there anybody out there who can explain what is happening in my Cervical spine?
