Neck Pain

Im hoping someone can help.... I woke up the other night with an extremely sharp pain in my neck. A day later, and I am still unable to turn my head to the left without feeling it pull and hurt! Any suggestions? Heating pad? Anything else?

  • I won't go to a chiropractor because I refuse to have anyone touch my neck. I would go with heating pad, ibuprofen and talking to the doc. You may have just pulled something or slept funny.

  • In the shower, stand under the water so it's right on the spot, make it as hot as you can stand it without burning yourself, lol..take some Aleve or Motrin..have someone massage the area..or go to a chiropractor. Good luck.

  • take a hot bath, and get the area massaged. Loosen the muscle. Chirpractors are for bones. You have a muscle issue. If the heat doesn't work, try ice. and Motrin.

  • Try to move it, looking left then right up then down, a few times a day... but don't rotate it all the way round like in a circle, that's not good for your neck.. don't ask me why.
