I haven't had back and neck pain for very long or hardly ever in my life. About 2 months ago I started to get very anxious and stressed out about events happening in my life. I kept rubbing my neck because the tension was building. As I kept rubbing, I felt this lump on the right ride of my spi e about 2 fingerlengths from my hairline. It's larger than a quarter and sort of round. It is under the skin and feels like a stress knot. Now that I keep pushing it and trying to rub it out, it won't go away. For weeks and weeks. My back hurts by my right shoulder blade and trapezius. The lump goes over my spine and is on the left side a little bit. Does anyone have anything similar to this? As well as the pain... I have been experiencing flashes in my eyes.
