Connective tissue

I am developing new pain, this time in the connective tissue between shoulders and neck. If I move the wrong way, I get knife-like pains in the shoulder muscles and tendons.

Has anyone experiences this? I do have scoliosis and the shoulders without rotator cuffs, so my muscles are all out of place.

Thanks for any responses.

    Sounds very sore turtle.

    I do get this and usually take my anti-inflams as prescribed and put a warm wheatbag on it until it settle - usually about 3-5 days in my case.

    Sounds as though a muscle or two are locked up in spasm, to protect an injury or an ongoing issue. As Toni says a hot wheatbag, to relax it, a bath and a gentle masssage? A visit to an osteopath may be called for? I enjoy a scented massage when I can get oh away from her jobs.

    Visits to doctors, physios can take a long time these days.
