Forgive me, but I need t to revisit neck issues.
I searched on “neck” and read everything. Seems many of us have neck issues from the PSA. I wanted to get a feel for the pain from PSA in the neck (ha) as opposed to other sources of pain in the neck (ha).
I have terrible neck problems due to fused vertebrae and vertebrae that need to be fused. C3 and 4 are the only two not fused. They are in bad shape but doc doesn’t want to fuse the rest of my neck. Anyway, I wanted to ask those that have indicated they have neck pain from PSA how it felt.
When C3 and 4 are acting up, the pain feels like bone on bone pain. It has a certain feel to it. I got an epidural a few weeks ago and it helped the bone on bone pain for now. But, I seem to be having a very stiff neck with pain and upper shoulder involvement now. The pain is different. It feels like whiplash pain. Tendons seem to be stiff and hurt a lot.
Does whiplash-type of pain seem to be more in line with PSA in the neck? This pain is different than the bad disc pain. This came on after the last epidural. The shot helped for a few weeks, then this came on.
I am off my Humira due to COVID, but I am wondering with cold-weather returning if that is causing a PSA flare in my neck and upper shoulders? I am beginning to think I am going to need to get back on the Humira.
Some advice from those with the PSA in the neck and how the pain feels, please. Thanks!!
