body pain

I' m 46 years old and I have neck, left shoulder lower back and right buttock or cheek pain. I haven't gone to the doctor yet but can you give me an idea of what can be causing this. Other than that I'm a very healthy woman.

The history should give you some idea of whether these are connected, or completely separate issues. Did they all start together, did you stumble or fall, or take a long journey for example?

A short leg produces pain throughout the spine like this, but I would have expected it to start before this.

Once you have a sense that it's not going to get better with some home treatment, then don't delay; get a professional opinion.

Meantime some gentle back and neck exercises would probably help. Gentle is the operative word.
