For years I have had these flare ups in my upper back that moves into my shoulders, neck & base of my head causing migraines. The pain is a burning pain with tightness. I've recently had x-rays & my dr just tells me it's "just arthritis" & I feel it's more than that. This pain is debilitating when it flares. Doesn't take much for it to get out of control. I just want the pain gone. Who should I see about this as my family doctor doesn't seem to get how bad it is & how long it lasts. I've used TENS, muscle relaxers, muscle rubs, heating pads, NSAIDS & resting it, meaning laying in bed for 3-5 days to try & calm it down. Please help. Thank you!
