Recurring sudden sharp pain where the neck meets the shoulders
A few months ago, I started having these sharp pains in the region between my neck and shoulder. It is deep, it feels like it goes beyond the muscle to the bone. If I could describe it, I would say it's like a bolt of pain, sharp, fast and deep.
I don't have insurance to have tests run. Has anybody experienced something similar or does anyone know this as a symptom to be something serious?
FYI, I've been under a tremendous amount of stress. I lost my mom, have family issues, was unemployed and homeless for a while. This could be a factor as the pain started in the midst of it all.
