  • Heat. But if cold feels better that'll help any inflammation. Tylenol & ibuprofen alternately - correct doses with 4 hours between each (take tylenol at 4, ibu at 8, tyl at 12, for example). Chiropractor as soon as you can. If you have access to it (it's not sold in stores, I know my chiro sells it) us Biofreeze - so much better than cheapo versions.

  • warm compresses.....I wouldnt really call it a pinched nerve it could just be a pulled muscle in your neck...good luck and I hope that you feel better....also if you have a husband/boyfriend see if they will rub it for you...it might hurt but it will losen that area up and then get a warm shower with the shower head hitting the spot....
