That is probably not true.
Here is what you need to do.
You have not had the correct assessment or treatment.
See a physical medicine and rehabilitation doctor.
This is a type of MD
Also called a physiatrist.
You will get a structural assessment.
This sounds like you have disc problems in the neck and upper thoracic spine, or other strain there.
In addition you can have fibromyalgia which is common in this situation as well.
This doc can handle meds but will give you the correct manual therapies..way beyond chiropractic in terms of helping with the spine..and this should help immensely.
You will also most likely get a correct diagnosis.
Use reply if you need to clarify
