This morning my husband noticed that in a large area on my upper back just below my neck, there is a big swelling or some kind of lump forming. We both know it is due to muscle tension from stress. Pain in my neck, shoulders, and back (and sometimes jaw) is almost unbearable at times and is always there to some degree, even with attempts to help it with relaxing practices, upper body exercises, stretches, applying heat, and deep massages.
Has anyone had this lump thing happen before? Do you think it is muscles swelling up? What have you done that has helped for this?
ps- if it starts to seem I would get more responses by posting in another area, please feel free to let me know or to move this elsewhere. Thanks
