I am looking for anyone who may have experienced the following symptoms. My aunt is suffering from severe neck pain and has been for over a year. It is more on her left side and runs into her head. She says she feels pain on the top of her head (scalp). She had been diagnosed with bone spurs, but was told by her doctor that they would not be causing the severe pain she is feeling. She also has osteoarthritis, but still doctors think that this is not cause for severity of pain. She says a muscle on the left side of her neck is very tense and only time it eases is when she is asleep. Sometimes pain runs into top of left shoulder. She had tried numerous treatments. She has had a steroid shot, acupuncture, pain management, and had been to a chiropractor. She has had an MRI and x-rays, but nothing shows up. A neurosurgeon told her that all he could recommend was to have fusion done on her neck, but told her he could not guarantee at all that it would eliminate the pain. She wears a neck brace that helps minimally, but really doesn't ease the pain. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who may have an idea as to what may be causing her severe pain and what things could be done for her.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
