I had such back shoulder and neck pain it would put me to tears....a deep dull ache i considered yoga, heat, rest, deep rubbing...docs had no clue and figured i over did something. I also was having some pain on my right side now and then and felt emotional and one time thought i was having a heat attack with a racing heart that stopped me in my tracks...after googling some of these symptoms i found a site that suggested gallbladder issues and that is what it was...i did a natural olive oil cleanse and ate better and it was gone, years later i have heard several nurses mention the connection between shoulder and neck pain and the gallbladder, although two docs didnt mention it...hope this helps
