I am new to these forums! I hope everyone is doing okay.
I've been having cervical pain for 5 months now. It started as aching in my spine and radiating pain in my shoulders. It hurts to look down (it sounds like its grinding when I look up or down and when looking down I get pain down my spine and into my hips/legs) hold my head to look up or to the sides. My symptoms continue to worsen as time progress. Now I'm in constant pain with flare ups getting so horrible I cry. My legs get painful chills/entire body chills and I'm always cold. I have myoclonus episodes 3 or more times a day. My lower neck clicks when I do just about anything.
I wanted to know if anyone has any ideas on what it could be? I went to the er the other night and was given a neck brace and muscle relaxants and told I should get an MRI. I had an X-ray done in October and was told it was fine minus having loss the curvature in it.
