Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 months ago):
My doctor is working by process of elimination to determine what causes my muscle pain. It occurs on the top of my shoulders, up my neck, my upper and lower back, and down both arms to my wrists. The most severe area is the top of my shoulders and my neck. I also suffer from a radiating headache up the back of my head, probably because of the pain in my neck and shoulders.
