Our expert says:
I think I agree with your psychiatrist and think the cause of your symptoms are severe muscle spasm in the upper back and neck area. See if you can find a physiotherapist that can do "dry needling" of the triggerpoints in your neck and back. Ask the physio to show you how to do neck and upper back exercises to prevent muscle spasm. I also suggest that you see a psychologist for one or two sessions to teach you how to do physical relaxation techniques, which you must try to do 2-3 times a day. Orthopedic surgeons only work with joint diseases and neurosurgeons work only with nerves that are compressed to such an extent that an operation is necessary.
