Dogs. I would suspect this definately has something to do with it, im sorry. I have a Brit which as you know is not that big, but he's a puller big time. To make it worse we have him on a reel leash. Believe it or not i think he has something to do with my problem as well. He was a gift for my daughter, but of course i got stuck with him, walking him most of the time. One time when he was on the reel, i wasnt paying attention and he ran as fast as he could to the left of me, while i was squatting not paying attention. When he got to the end, it pulled my arm out to the left at top speed. Some of my problems are in this area. My guess is that yours are too. The area being the neck, thorax, shoulder area. Unfotunately there are nasty entrapments especially in the thorax, shoulder area, such as a brachial plexus, or thoracic outlet syndrome. I also have problems in the lumbar somewhere, and just walking him constantly throws you off balance. Its possible you have upper body disc problems now, or some kind of myofascial syndrome. If the later is the case, this wont even show up on mris, as it could be just a problem with muscles/nerves. In my case the problem has lasted over a year so far, and of course the panic and depression doesnt help. It would seem the best testing you could do would be extensive bloodwork just to make sure there isnt a problem with blood sugar, lyme disease etc., and then the mris. In the meantime if you havent tried anything else, maybe massage, myofascial release, chiropractors, physical therapy etc. These things have at one time or another brought some relief or improvement. Adding panic disorder to the mix just makes it worse. Now you have chemicals overloading your body, cortisol, histamine, etc.
Im sorry for the gloomy post, but if i were to guess, i would say that you have some kind of physical problem along with anxiety. It stinks. I wish you the best of luck with all of this and hope yours doesnt end up in a chronic pain situation like mine.
If you can, dont let the dogs pull you, it will only make matters worse.
