Patient :Chronic pain and shoulder pain for 4 months, happens when I bend down my neck for more than 10 seconds and when I sit in a fixed position for more than 15 minutes
Symptoms: Dear Doctor,
I have a chronic pain in my neck for almost 4 months now, the pain usually start and increase in two situations, the first one when I bend down my neck for more than 10 seconds and the second one when I sit in a fixed position for more than 15 minutes while my neck carry my head.
Usually the pain starts in my neck, then increase to my shoulders and center back.
I have done an MRI (attached) and I have seen 4 different doctors till now (attached their prescriptions), unfortunately there no any significant improvement in my conditions but it stills the same as the first day.
I am a male with 32 years old and my profession is IT project manager.
Appreciate if you can provide a reason for my condition as it seems that i have been treated for the wrong reasons till now.
Hello, and Welcome to ATD.
You have not been prescribed wrong medication.
You have cervical spine related pain due to faulty posture or work related pain seen commonly in IT professional. You need to have lifestyle modification and add isometric cervical exercises to your routine part from medication mentioned by the doctors.
Most improvement will be by the lifestyle changes and regular exercises.
Pain improvement will take a few weeks from now.
If there is anything else feel free to discuss.
