Customer Question
Im not sure I...

Im not sure I was searching your website i have Cervical degenerative disc disease and tried to do a few body movementts on Tuesday. The las two or three days the muscle in the right side of my neck seems to have spasmed. I was worried it could be a dissection of some sort...

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?

Only a burning sensation on my back between my spine and shoulder blade. I haven't noticed numbness or tinging other than when I sleep.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I've had a CT scan of my head and it was negative. I have only had X-ray and MRI of my neck in the last 3 months. Thats when DDD was discovered.

are you having any weakness to either arm or problems with speech?

no, my right shoulder is sore as well, i have some hightness in my right ear
...i wasn't sure if its soreness from streetching and moving 3 days ago or something worse.
Neurologist: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

does not sound like carotid or vertebral artery dissection which would have neurological changes such as difficulty in speech or arm weakness or loss of balance.

Also due to location down in shoulder blade, this sounds more like rhomboid spasm, so heat and gentle stretching should resolve it.

Does that help answer your question?
