Suggest treatment for burning sensation in throat with neck and shoulder pain

I m wondering if I have Multiple Myloma? I m feeling the worst burning sensation in my throat, in the back of neck. I ve suffered from neck and shoulder pain on my left side for more than 2years. The last week or so especially this evening the burning pain on the back of my neck and in the back of my mouth and down my throat is unbearable.

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you haveburning sensation in throat with neck and shoulder pain . Well there can be many reasons for symptoms you mention in query like muscle spasm , nerve compression or heart problem like angina . Sometimes occipital neuralgia can also cause such symptoms .

I would suggest you to consult orthopedic surgeon for proper examination and treatment . Doctor may order CT scan , MRI along with nerve conduction test and physical examination to confirm the diagnosis . Doctor may prescribe muscle relaxant , anti inflammatory , nerve supplement along with physical therapy .

For now stay calm , take ibuprofen , apply warm compresses to shoulder and arm , do light stretching exercises under expert or acetaminophen for pain and take proper rest. Doctor may also refer you to neurologist for nerve problem or ENT specialist for throat infection .

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
