I'm a 21 year old female. I have have very intense pain right between my neck and shoulder for a year now. It feels like a "pulling" sensation. It hurts to sit without a back on a chair, lifting the laundry basket hurts and so does sitting down to do any type of activity(folding clothes, driving) I have had an MRI done and it came back clean. The doctor also took blood and all came back ok. I have done physical therapy and steroid packs. The steroid packs did wonders but always wore off quickly. My shoulder/neck is the only thing that is bothering me. I starting to feel unlike myself and not wanting to do the the things I used to love because I know that soon after I'll be hurting. I take Ibprofin up to 4 times a day due to the overwhelming pain. I haven't received a diagnosis. My doctor thought maybe something was wrong with my rotator cuff but then thought rheumatoid arthritis but when everything came back clean he suggested fibromiagia. I think he suggested this out if frustration as my neck:shoulder is literally the only thing that bothers me, other than that I am perfectly fine. I am looking for a second opinion in guess. Maybe he is right with the fibro thing but it just doesn't feel right to me.
