[B][/B]My name is Dan. I've been unable to work for five years b/c of severe, severe neck and trap pain. Before that I worked at a computer for 50-60 hrs. a week. Well, since then, I've had 2 shoulder surgeries and ACDF on C4-C5 and C5-C6. DUMBEST THING I'VE DONE IN MY LIFE. The neck surgery cured none of the pain, and I'm still on muscle relaxers and painkillers. I've spent tens of thousands on traditional medical tx and homeopathic and nontraditional tx's.

The only other thing I can think of as a physical cause is a benign tumor in the neck, an osteoid osteoma, that might be causing this pain. Of course, at the pain clinic, I always talk to a different PA every damn time and never the doctor and they won't refer me for one - they want to shoot me up or give me another round of epidurals, just running up my bills with more unnecessary tx. Has anyone had a bone scan for neck pain? Did it help? Would a benign tumor cause any other symptoms that I could check myself against. Any advice or experience would be helpful... Thanks, Dan.
