What causes pain in the neck and middle part of the back?

I have had LP for about 8 months and it is still flaring up. I can t sleep many of nights due to the itching. My medical DR. told me to watch my gluten intake due to having Celiac disease. I m very careful what I eat and haven t had gluten for a while. I also have a lot of pain in my neck and middle back. Could pain be the culprit?

Hello,

The itching could be related to an allergic reaction. But, before coming to this conclusion, I would recommend performing some tests:
- Kidney and liver function tests
- Complete blood count, PCR, ESR
- Uric acid plasma levels

Regarding the pain in the neck and middle back, it could be related to chronic degeneration of the vertebral column or a wrong posture. for this reason, I recommend performing a thoracic and cervical vertebral column X-ray study. Physiotherapy may be helpful!

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
