    Along with the pain under my shoulder

    and neck my lowest left rib will feel like it twists. When that happens it feels like the whole side of my body is bruised and if I attempt to move my spine I end up on my knees in pain struggling to stand without twisting my back. That pain lessens over three days and I resume...

    True ...

    Think it is aided by spending long work hours before a computer. Most desks and chairs are not egonomically made for long durations in the same position.

    Every Day...

    my neck and shoulders hurt.....I think a lot of it has to do with how I sit...and it's where all my stress goes. I am always tense. I meditate and relax as much as I can. I'm not sure exactly what to do.

    Old I Guess

    I've had bursitis in my shoulder and back issues from the last birth but I mostly think I'm just getting old. Nothing a little motrin won't cure.

    Bulging Disc In My Neck May Be Causing Chronic Migraines.

    My neck injury was originally caused by a major MVA in 1983.  As I've gotten older the problem has become worse.  No doctor will operate since I can still use my arms and hands.  Any surgery has the risk of paralysis. Meanwhile, I have daily headaches/migraines...

    Mostly My Back

    I work in a bakery, so I do a lot of standing...on a very hard floor. Plus, it doesn't help that most of my shoes are vans slip-ons, chucks, etc. No support whatsoever. I'm pretty sure my posture isn't very good, so with these things combined, my back is always killing me.
