Default Help?

Hi everyone;
This is new to me, but I will say a relief! I am a 34 yr old lady, that has a PWS on the back of my head/neck area. (At least that is what 3 doctors are telling me.) I have had this since I was a baby. It seems to grow/shrink, but it has never gone away. The problem is, over the past 3 months, it is causing extreme pain down my neck and into my left shoulder. I have tried to get help seeing different specialist, but am having a time. Anyone with any knowledge on what this could really be, or where I can go to get help, would be much appreciated. Thank you.
I am from Orillia On.

me again.. I went to my family doc today, and he is going to run some xrays of the neck. He thinks it may be something different from the PWS.

Keep fingers crossed.. hopefully I will find out what is going on.
