Just was wondering if anyone had similar experience/symptoms.
I'm on wait list to get CT scan on spine, and EMG.
-posture is guarding automatically. if I pull my shoulder back & Down the pain goes from a 2/10->9/10 in my mid back area. My posture guards by moving Up & forward.
-Constant clicking/snapping one one side of cervical spine. Feels like someone is plucking me like a guitar, over and over again repeatedly. The pressure builds slowly over minutes then and releases suddenly over half a second. Lieing down makes it worse, Sitting makes it worse, Standing relieves it some what.
-Get spasms/pain traveling down into front of shoulder/bicep & into my tricep.
-Basically If I use the arm on the problem side at all it gets messed up the inflammation spreads like wild fire throughout my shoulder/back of neck/side of neck/front of neck
-Tried chiropractor adjustment where they snapped my neck to relieve some of the tightness, Made it noticeably worse.
-Tried Acupuncture/prolotherapy, ultrasound, massage therapy. It seems like whenever they manage to relieve the tightness in the neck muscles it starts automatically plucking like a guitar again. Then the huge inflammation / spasms follows. Then it Tightens up significantly/guards.
-Advil helps me function, without it I'm a mentally unstable. Pain seems to expose my Bipolar tendencies.
