To preface- we have no insurance and I have no ability to see a doctor at this time. It is my hope this changes in a couple of months. I'm obviously not seeking a dx online but wouldn't mind not feeling "crazy" right about now.
My neck has been in pain, daily, since April 28th, 2016. No incident occurred barring the fact I've been under a lot of stress/anxiety from losing my mom in Nov. 2014 (I am taking no medicine other than ibuprofen and tylenol). Up to April 28th, I had experienced some pain in my left shoulder blade and tingling in my arms (not daily- just occasionally).... This all starting after I had lost my mom. I had to lift her several times while she was in hospice (the only thing I can think I could have caused any issues). I don't recollect a simple point of any of my pain starting except after my mom passed and of course this recent neck pain.
Anyway, it's upper right hand neck pain near my right hairline. It radiates over my mastoid area, behind my rightear, over my ear, behind my right eye, sometimes in my right jaw area and throat area. It's daily. Some days feel less painful than others... But it's always there. It hurts to turn my head to the right - almost like the worst "crick in the neck" I've experienced. Some days it feels like it's just hard to keep my head up.
I did a free consultation with a Chiro and he ran some piece of equipment up and down my neck noting that my right side was favored (I knew that going in). Couldn't afford him, so nothing was pursued.
In the most general sense- does this sound like my cervical area?
