I start with a charlie horse like feeling pain along side my spine and my neck...it goes down into my left shoulder and down my left arm. I have a lot of numbness in my left leg from th knee down and my left arm every night. The charlie horse feeling is a constant nagging pain, I feel like I have to flex or tense my muscles just to get some relief, its something I can't reach or touch. I have taken blood pressure medication and pain medication but still no relief. Most doctors don't believe me or try to push me off on another doctor. I have had MRI's, CAT scans, Chiropractic work, and X rays without a solid diagnosis and solution. I have severe heartburn in which I take medication for also. These are the meds I take percocet, gabapentin(neurotin), methocarbamol(robaxim), alprazolam, and amlodipine besylate, and prilosec. The main concerns for me are the chest pain and numbness in my arms and legs also. I am a 28 yr old male.
