Having SEVERE pain and burning on left side of neck, upper back and out to the shoulder joint. With Severe spasms of the shoulder. Right neck and upper back also has moderate to severe pain and spasms. Had Radio Frequency in January 2019, usually with very good results but not this time. Just had epidural and scheduled for a second one in 2 weeks. I have a referral to a Neurosurgeon.

My Mood: Cervical spine pain and burning
Default

We had some nurses in the past with Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS).. we have a TOS forum if you want to explore the sticky threads for more info..
https://www.neurotalk.org/thoracic-outlet-syndrome/

TOS can overlap/share with c spine sx..

Forward head posture?
Lots of awkward lifting & moving of pts can bring on TOS or similar strain issues.

Does MRI state any specific nerve is being impinged?

I'd ask for some expert PT and assessment by the PT.
MDs have conflicting thoughts (lack of experience) on TOS /TOS like conditions..
