Pain in the neck
Wow, it's been so long, forgot this post was ever out there.
That pain when on for a few months and then went away on it's own. However earlier this year (2013) I got a shooting pain in my neck in the same area but going from my ear to the top of my shoulder. I did my normal treatment, which was ignore it and hope it goes away. A few weeks later I'm playing racquetball and that's when it really started to hurt. I think that was the final straw. A few days after that I ended up with a sustained shooting pain that forced me to call for a ambulance. On a scale of 1 to 10, it was an eleven. My wife was really shocked, because I never ask to go to the doctor. This time the pain was so bad I thought I was going to pass out.
The ER doctor gave me a muscle relaxer and some pain meds. That seem to get everything under control. I followed-up with 10 chiropractor sessions.
I do think this was nerve related, and the only thing I could find to explain it was Dysesthesia.
I have a physical coming up with my primary doctor, so I'll discuss this with them. Doctors always like it when you match up symptoms on the internet
If you find out anything please post back. Thanks.
