What is cause of persisting tightening pressure on the left side of my neck after taking flexeral in a female having carpal tunnel ?

HI. I m a 24 yr old female. I ve had a generally healthy past until recently. A few months ago I started experiencing a very uncomfortable tightening pressure on the left side of my neck. I went to a clinic that diagnosed it as a neck injury and gave me flexeral and told me it would be better in 3 weeks. Well it has only gotten worse and the flexeral did nothing. It s starting to worry me and it s keeping me up at night. I m also dealing with a few things that are probably unrelated but I will mention them : I m exhausted, I m having joint pain and body aches alot, I was recently diagnosed with carpal tunnel which is getting very bad. Not sure if it helps. Please help me.... I m so worried.

I am a 45 year old female and I had bilateral carpal tunnel release surgery 3 weeks ago. It may be helpful for you to know that when I was 18 I had a serious accident where I rolled several times in a vehicle resulting in multiple fractures from my waist up in my ribs, shoulder bones as well as crushing my spine at T4 & T5. At my last MRI approximately 6 plus years ago, an orthopedic physician said all looked well and it was not necessary to be treated for these injuries ever again.The orthopedic surgeon who treated me initially and then several years following the accident said that it would be crucial to have xrays and or an MRI every 5 years for the rest of my life so that the curvature of my spine could be measured to determine if it have moved and to be able to watch for deterioration.Anyway, since the bilateral release surgery I ve experienced intense aching in my elbows and triceps as well as numbness and tingling in my left pinky. I thought this might be a result from the nerves reacting to the surgery but the aching is so intense like I have the flu. Any thoughts?

Having constant pain just under the rib cage on the left side for two days, almost like lacking the oxigen when wrongly running-splean? Being nauseus and very tired in the morning and NOT pregnant, having strong pain in the stomach if taking a cup of coffee on an empty stomach. Till recently, being on prolonged dose of vitamin and mineral suplements due to a carpal tunnel syndrom and back and neck problems, morning stifness and pains in the joints ( vitamin B complex , glucosamine , vitamin D @A , vitamin C , ...for almost 3 months, now stoped due to excessive pain in the stomach if taken. Having very low cholesterol and low to normal blood pressure, being a bit overweight , 44 years old, 165cm and cca 80 kg, pear shaped, veins problems for years, itchy skin on few spits on my problematic leg. Operated meniscuses on my right knee and bowel due to prolaps and hemorroides _NOT successful. More problems then before. Do not want to operate my hands even though I have constantly numb first three fingers on both hands, right worse. I have Mirena fitted for last three years and now blaming it on my prolonged worsening of all conditions I already have - even borderline smear tests for two years in a row, sometimes bleeding after intercours, or having strong pain with certain positions; ultrasound appears to be normal. Could it be Mirena??? I am a houswife at the moment, so not overstressed or extremely overburdened. I tried to walk a lot , cycle and swim aprox 2_3 times monthly. Have to abandon tennis and golf in last two years..thanks .
