hi Mel,nice to see your still pluggin along.i too have horrid muscle wads that are actually stemming from my c spine inflammation and other assorted nastiness up in my c spine.i have had probably every type of injection up there with probably at least one hundred seperate little trigger point injections just over the past three years in an attempt to get rid of(or knock it down to a humane level) that tightness and muscle crap and the pain.

what you have described really does sound c spine related,it should be interesting to see what pops up on your MRI.i too have really incredible heights of burning along with stinging over both shoulder blades,it's called central pain syndrome.this was another little 'gift' of my spinal cord surgery.if you should actually happen to see any actual spinal cord compromise on that MRI,this could be just one possibility for the burning you are feeling.muscle stuff can also cause some pretty intense burning too.this would be another possibility given the fact it really does sound like you have some very real c spine inflammation going on up there.

my muscle-c spine stuff just never goes away just because i have such a screwed up c spine these days.the best i can do is get it calmed down once in a while then it all comes back again.one really great thing i tried that seems to help,besides taking the tennis ball in a sock thing and running it over my back by placing the ball between the wall and my back and pushing into the biggest trigger points,is that shiatzu massager thing?I LOVE those magic thumbs!i actually asked for this for christmas last year.tho it really wasn't all that expensive,i think it was between 20 to 30 bucks or something?i don't use it all the time,only when things feel really intense up there or underneath my shoulderblade area gets just too uncomfortable,but you can just place this behind your neck or back areas,preferably in a high back chair?it is just harder to move around if you lie on it and in some cases,its just too much pressure when you lie on it.but you can move this like sideways and it really works out those trigger points.i try to do this with my hands but i just get sore hands and cannot apply the appropriate type of pressure for any good length of time,thats when i get out the shiatzu.it just goes and goes and goes.this really has been the only thing that helps bring down my pain levels just helping to rid those wads of muscle.just a good suggestion for you to try if you have,like me, run out of options for these little evil wads.i use lido patches at certain bad spots too.this seems to help with that 'gnawing" type feeling you can get from the nerve-muscle crap?just some thoughts for you.hopefully you will find some sort of actual reason on that MRI for all of this stuff you are having to deal with from your c spine.even just plain old DDD can keep creating these little wadded nightmares too.let me know what you find out mel.nice hearing from you again.Marcia
