18 months ago or more, I had a lot of neck and shoulders pain to the point that I could not type very much. I then lost my insurance but now have insurance.
Now, I have severe pain in my neck, shoulders, lower back and have difficulty walking. When I sit down it hurts and when I get up it hurts. For the past few months, my neck has been swollen and hot. Right at the base of my neck, I have a bump around C7 that has been getting bigger since 18 mos ago; my arms hurt to left anything, pain under left ribcage and cannot bend over. Got 2 MRIs, one for C spine and other for soft tissue. I heard that I have "lymphnodes" around my neck. Dont have results yet of the soft tissue MRI. does anyone know what I have? I am really miserable and can barely work (office work). Any si milar experiences/symptoms from any of you would greatly be appreciated. thanks Q 08jan09

  • What was happening in your life when the pain started? Usually there's something emotional, or there's a physical trauma of some sort (jet ski accident, etc).-James Knochel
