Acid reflux can have these symptoms. I had no symptoms of acid reflux, except really, really intense shoulder, lower back and neck pain - especially on my right side (I sleep on my right side). It went on for so long without easing, then (thank god) I started getting a weird tickle way at the back of my throat. I went to see an ENT, he stuck a scope up my nose (sorry if TMI), looked around, pulled it out and asked if my back and shoulder hurt.
Amazing. So for months I was in excruciating pain. He told me to try a 14-day regimen OTC prilosec, cut back on acids and coffee and see how it went. The pain was much better in about 4 days and gone in about 10. Now whenever I get a sore shoulder, I pop a prilosec along with my Advil.
Maybe that's what you're experiencing, maybe it's not. But the $15 investment in a box of Prilosec can't hurt.

I had the same problem about 5months ago. I was going to doctors and than chiro with some relief. It all came down to stress. I was working two jobs and wasn't really working out. Long story got temporary laid off and started working out and gone! If I skip working out for a few days, the pain comes back. I've heard accupuncture works well too! Don't give up on working out!

My insurance is going to get a workout with PT, massage, and meds!! Haha- poor FI is going to get carpal tunnel massaging me so much. Also- I am blessed to lead a very stress free life- so that can't be the issue. Thanks for listening!

Massages and yoga are a wonderful idea! I think Iâ€™m going to try both this weekend. I usually heart yoga, but havenâ€™t done it in awhile. Mmmmm hot yoga sounds good right nowâ€¦.
Wow Sapphire- Itâ€™s good to know that Iâ€™m not the only one that suffers the bad commute. It has been only an hour lately because the college is not in session. Come a couple of months though, and Iâ€™ll be looking at anywhere from an hour -2 ½ on bad days! It is the worst isnâ€™t it!?? I am the same with stretching during the day. I have actually set up my outlook to send a pop up every few hours to make me do it.
Interesting Becks--- Iâ€™ll definitely look into it. Iâ€™m glad you are feeling better.
Sorry to hear about the layoff dana!
Thanks for the hugs and encouragement I will start doing EVERYTHING that everyone suggested. Anything to get rid of this. HUGS BACK!

By these things and use them constantly while you are at work.

I know it seems odd to have this stuff at work but trust me get it and use when no one is around and you will thank me. It helps the pain from becoming excruciating and makes your day go better. You can also talk to your work and see if they will allow a masseuse to come in once a week and employees can get 15/20 min massages on a break or lunch alot of companies are open to this.
Get better and get some Soma prescriptions from your doctor!
