Help me get rid of shoulder tension that’s plagued me since 1980

I carry all the tensions of my life in my shoulders and neck. Any time of day or night, if I turn my focus to my shoulders, I’ll find they’re involuntarily tensed tight, as if my body were trying to curl up and brace itself against something. Even when I feel quite happy and relaxed, the tension is there. I would love to hear your recommendations on the best way to address this specific problem. I’d like it if the solution were something I could do myself, but I’m open to considering yoga, massage, whatever, if they will lead to a lasting solution. [more inside]

Advice for a (probably) pinched nerve? Good physiotherapist? (Tokyo)

I've had a tingling/burning sensation in my left shoulder/hand for about a week. A doc that I saw in Tokyo thinks I have a pinched nerve and told to come back in a week, but was rather vague about what to do in the meantime. I have no health insurance so I would prefer to not go back, but I just noticed the tingling starting up in my right hand as well. [more inside]

If a sinus infection kills me before the cancer, I'm going to be really pissed off.

Does anyone have experience with infection/disease in the sphenoid sinus? Everything I read online suggests that I have to get this treated IMMEDIATELY or I'll become brain-damaged or dead, and I'm already convinced the former is setting in... [more inside]

It's not a tumor, but this headache is going to kill me anyway.

I have had an insanely painful headache, possibly caused by a pulled muscle in my neck, for over week and nothing I have tried has helped. I have seen my doctor and his diagnosis/suggestions haven't really led me anywhere. Help me come up with more things to try before I go crazy. [more inside]

Help me find a better pillow.

I think it's time for a new pillow - one that will help alleviate chronic neck/back pain. Preferably suited for back sleepers. I'll even settle for something that doesn't make the pain worse at this point - the last two weeks have pushed me to the limit.

A literal pain in the neck at night.

I am having neck pain that develops into a headache whenever I lay down. It started just over one week ago, and has progressively gotten worse. It goes away a few hours of waking up, though as it's gotten worse, it takes longer to go away. Yes, I've been to the doctor and we're working on a diagnosis; I'm looking for more insight.

How can I avoid neck pain when riding rollercoasters?

I get neck pain from tensing my neck up whenever I ride rollercoasters. It's either like my neck is in lock-down mode or my head is getting battered every which way. Is there a way to cope with this so I can continue to enjoy rollercoasters? Or now that I'm 25 and decrepit do I have to stand on the sidelines and hold everyone's sno-cones? [more inside]
