is it safe to use icy hot or other pain relieve creams/gels?

I'm 18 wks and woke up with a neck pain, it's shooting down to my shoulder blade. I used ice pack and hot pack but still very stiff. Can I use any of the pain creams like icy hot? Thanks in advance

  • I have been told these creams are fine to use and I have been using them regularly on my lower back for the last weeks of my pregnancy.
