wow, it's funny you should mention the pinched nerve thing. I have a continual problem with my neck and and some nerve that goes into my shoulder blade. Been to the chiropracter 2 times but he never said anything about a pinched nerve. He said it was this condition called tortacollis, compression of the upper neck vertabrae. This guy seemed fake to me though and i stopped my sessions. today i wake up and can't hardly even move my neck without EXTREME pain! And yes, I have horrible sinus conditions and just recently switched from rhinocort to nasonex to see if it works any better. I do have the AYR saline spray but always just sprayed it up there but never blew it back out. That is a good idea! I am really curious about this pinched nerve possibly causing all this throat trouble with swallowing and even slight pain at the top of my esophagus. I will mention this to the GI on thursday.

The muscles in the neck will affect your sinus. You have sinus glands in the base of your skull too. I know that first hand - especially with the neck tightness and pain. Maybe the chiro was onto something? Did you try seeing another chiro for a second opinion?

some therapy on your neck and an adjustment or two may help. i know when i get my neck adjusted - when i leave that chiro office my sinus drains like crazy and i'm clear the next day!

But don't give up hope on it until you give it a try and a few adjustments?

go with your instincts none the less. nobody knows your body more than you! i don't think the GI doc will be knowledgeable in the area of neck pain... its not his expertise, ya know? Especially in the area of sinus related stuff... but he could tell you that swallowing all kinds of sinus can't be good for your tummy, that is for sure!

I just saw my GI doc this evening for a consult. I go on Friday for an endoscopy. I am so scared to have it done! The idea of being put out and risks just freak me out.
