I have neck, shoulder and head pain. No trauma Headache is right above ears almost in line with temples if wearing glasses and also at base of skull in back which is actually the worst pain!
Moving neck will sometimes make a cracking sound but not loud and not all the time or often.
Getting it rubbed does make it feel better somewhat but doesn't last long.
All muscles in that are are hard as rocks and very tight. Again massage does help but not for long.
Actually the muscles of my arms are often tight and sometimes painful but yet feel better being rubbed
I am insulin dependent diabetic on insulin pump using N500 and glucophage 1000 BID
I also have High Blood pressure and take a few medications for that.
I have increased cholesterol and take 40mg Simvastatin QAM
I also have Panic Attacks with Depression and Severe Anxiety.
I take Effexor 150mg BID Xanax 2 mg as needed along with Abilify 2 mg QHS.
1 Baby 81 mg ASA QAM.
It hurts a lot mostly in the neck area and rotating does seem to give just a moderation of relief.
I took 1 Percocet 5 mg about 90 minutes ago and another about 20 minutes ago with still no relief.
I do also have frozen shoulder and have been to physical therapy multiple times with some relief but never fixed. Surgery was discussed but not completed due to risks outweighing rewards at that time.
Most back of head where the indentation is at base of skull and about 2-3 inches higher and 1-2 inches lower in an egg shape almost.
Rubbing or a lot of pressure does make it better but only while applied.
Glucose was up at 270
BP was also up some at 151/91 pulse 94
Please ask if any other information is needed.
Thank You in advance for your help!
