Pain in the head radiating to the neck. History of heart attack. Need to be concerned about the pain?

when i went to the emergency room complaining of pain starting from the top center of my head and trailing down the side and into the side of my neck , i was given a brain scan and an ekg , since i am a heart attack patient. those tests came out fine therefore the doctor diagnosed me with fibrmyalgia. however i find that early in the morning i awake with grating pain in my neck shoulders, and across my upper back. interstingl, when i discover that i need to move my bowel (every time it happens) the pain subsides. WHY IS THAT !!!! Thank you doctors for being there! i am a 72 year old african american female.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Pain from the heart is NEVER felt on the top of the head....

Pain related to bowel movement refers to large intestine / may be in low back. Upper back pain is unlikely to be related to it.

The overall picture is very suggestive of anxiety and fibromyalgia.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
