Lower Back Muscle is Causing My Neck and Head to be Tight
(Rockingham, Western Australia)
It started 6 years ago. I had bad bursitis in both shoulders and I was fully resting from work. It took 12 months before I went back to full duties picking boxes in a warehouse for grocery stores. I started to get very tight after a while back at work, had a tight neck and shoulders and when I did physical lifting I would get this very bad itch all over my upper body. It was very uncomfortable.
I started getting physiotherapy and massage but nothing helped. I was waking up in the morning with a very stiff neck. It would take an hour to loosen up but even then I would be putting up with it all day. After a couple of stressful years I went to a chiropractor and he narrowed the problem down to a small muscle near my L5 on my right side of the back. That seems to be what's causing the tight neck, head, and shoulders, but I'm still not completely sure.
I just need some answers on what the problem is or could be. It's been ruining my life. :-(
Any help would be so amazing for me. I'm 27 and this has gone on since I was 21. This is not how I want to spend my younger years.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope someone out there can help me. I would be forever grateful.
