  • Mine lasted a long time. You could try a Chiropractor and see if that helps make it go away.

  • six years later and i can point to where i got my epidural. because its sensitive and when i touch it a slight pain is felt in my back. but the shoulder neck area are sore 75% of the time mostly in cold weather.
