About a month ago I woke up to a stiff neck/shoulder. It took about 1.5 weeks for it to go away. It started in the shoulder and worked it's way to the neck.
On Sunday I was playing volleyball and after a game I could feel my shoulder stiffen up. The area became inflamed, much like it did the time before. I would say the location of the pain is between the neck and shoulder (closer to the neck). The area felt like it had swollen to the size of a thumb.
The swelling has gone down but now my neck is very stiff.
Coworkers are suggesting I see a doctor. Last time I went to a doctor about my back, I ended up waiting in the waiting room for 3 hours then the Doctor just told me I have a "bad back". I don't want to waste my time.
Could my neck pain be anything serious. It has been sore since Sunday.
