Thanks Jomar and Mark. I love the idea of it being a neck soft tissue issue that imaging has missed. My neuros and general prqcticioneer doc keep saying the imaging were good so that not it. Im on the list for pt for my neck but I have to wait for april to get started. I may try to youtube some neck pt exercises to get started.

Avoid range of motion and focus on mild strengthening without strong movement. More important is sleep posture. When you sleep, your neck muscles relax and any poor posture puts strain on the neck.

I have an appt with a new neuro in 10 days.
I am going to ask about compression or damage that didn't show up on imaging.

Symptoms are Tension, tingling itching in face, It feels stiff but it actually moves fine. Pain ache in hands.

I think the scary thing to me thatbi get freaked out about is when my symptoms change. Tension in my face will itch then not itch. Move around or get stronger or less strong.
Hands ache less but had a little tremor earlier

Smile News!

Went to a new doc in CDA who is a head neck and spine doc. Lots of sport med experience. He thinks I have cervical facet syndrome / whiplash-associated disorder. I could see how that fits my symptoms and it is in the region many of you suspected.

PT Starts tomorrow. I feel like I can function better bc I have a plan.

Default April 11 Update

I had a good several weeks. Was exercising an doing well. Pain was low. Some symptoms would seem worse immediately after PT. Its been a rough couple days of pain.
Hands have been aching more this past week
Right lower stomach abdominal cramp-pain (probably not related)
Feet have been aching
Todays a little rough
-right ankle foot pain
-Hand aches
-Tension in right face

I'm so discouraged. I thought I was getting better. Its bad like it was in Dec...
I still want it to be a neck issue. I'm going to stick with PT and exercise. But I'm feeling down.
