      @dizzydancer Sorry it took so long but no my level of activity doesn't effect the pain level it's just there!

      Have you recently gotten into any constant physical activity?

      I had to have surgery on my neck which was necessary but the after effects of the 8 to 12 hr surgery left me with C-5 palsy in my right arm which I got most of the use back but the muscles get so tight and the nerves cause so much pain! Be sure you research it and make sure you NEED it! Just FYI

      That is something I can relate to. I had to start with X-RAYS because of insurance maybe the same where you live. I did notice the XRAYS come back with no answers. So ask your PCP for the X-Rays then move to an MRI or a CATSCAN. Be persistent because looking for answers for yourself you need to be your own best advocate. I hope with one of these tests you will begin to get answers.
