On the 19th December I was moving house and lifting heavy things for the most of the day and using my muscles etc more than normal as you would on days like house moves but I felt fine the day even after lifting a tv stand with one hand onto one shoulder (don't ask why silly me haha). But on the 21st December it all started with my shoulders feeling pushed forward and it then soon spread to neck ache and then the area around my collarbone began to be really tight and my shoulders didn't feel relaxed and I started to have shoulder blade ache as they felt began to felt tight like they were stopping my shoulders come down due to the tightness around the collarbone area.
Then a week or so later I began with low back ache when laid in bed my back doesn't feel relaxed and feels like it's stuck out but I get no pain it's just an ache/soreness when I walk up stairs etc.
And a week ago both my hands became weak and my wrist/fingers started to ache and my grip was weakened so it appears to have spread to alot of areas.
I am so confused as to what happened from lifting the TV stand and at the moment I have started physio but nothing's improving at the moment which is worrying.
So I've come on here to see if someone else has had this problem and can relate really or a health expert/professional can give me advice on what is happening and may have happened.
But at the moment life isn't great and I feel low in spirits and happiness because the worst thing is my hand weakness and the collarbone area which is so tight and it feels like my shoulders are stuck and won't come down and relax again due to that tightness and therefore the shoulder blades are aching as they are suffering too.
I also believe the shoulder blade aches are probably making the lower back sore and ache too and the shoulder pain/aches when I lift them up especially is bad and tight ache in my arms are related to the shoulder issues caused by the tightness around collarbone area.
Even as I type this my fingers ache it's so confusing and upsetting at the moment.
I look forward to seeing what replies/advice I get so I can get some hope, sorry if it's hard to read this but just wanted to try and get some advice and hopefully someone out there can improve my problems and get rid of them.

You have fairly obviously strained muscles during the lifting and your back is probably protesting wildly. Your physio should be able to identify that but if they don't it might be good to see a doctor. I personally would look for a Bowen therapist and try a few sessions of that. Google it to find more info and therapists.
I just saw this post while googling my symptoms, which are exactly the same. My doctor is saying i need cervcial fusion sugery. I am just curious if you have been diagnosed with anything yet and are you still have issues??
