A literal pain in the neck

22 replies • Last post

So I was woken up about 4:30am a couple nights ago when I tried to roll over in my sleep and my neck seized up with this agonising pain. It felt like the muscles on the right side of my neck were clenched tight into a little ball and every time I tried to move the pain was excruciating.

I went to a physio and she did some work on it to try to loosen it up but still I have very little mobility in my neck and every so often it just randomly seizes up in the worst pain I have ever felt. She said that she recommended that I take some Nurofen for the pain but when I told her I already had she was pretty shocked which I guess is what you don't want to hear from the physio.

So now I am sitting around trying to keep my head still and alternating hot and cold packs on it trying to get some relief. Thanks for reading, I just wanted to have a whinge! 😭

i am sorry to her that you are not very well at the moment...
but belive me it will take some time maybe a week and you are back on track.
and i am also pretty sure that is only a sign of getting older.
i dont know in what kind of physical constitution you're are for your age.
and sometimes it does not even have anything to do with it...
i remember a few years ago i just sat in an unfavorable position at the desk for
to long as a very very bad kind of pain start to grow and a other 2 houers later i had this
strong pain at every breath or huster I made.
my orthopedist explained to me that through the faulty sitting position
one of my rips is not moving up and down as normaly when i inhale and exhale.
and that was whyi had this unbeliv

Whinge away...you have a sympathetic audience here but unfortunately for you thats ALL we can do for you.
Hope your pain goes away soon Ed and that it becomes just a distant memory or perhaps a gentle reminder that as we get older, our bodies are paying us back for all the crap we did to it when we were younger.
Sighhhssss......

Aw, man that sucks. I've been there before and there's no worse pain than pinched nerves in your neck or low back. Hopefully you can find something for the inflammation to get you back able to move in the next couple days.

Is it easy to get your hands on muscle relaxers over there? I have some Flexiril, which I keep handy just in case I throw out my back (happens once a year or so).

Best of luck!

Sorry to hear that Ed..I've had a similar experience once but with the difference I've had a pretty good idea what caused that then...and it was all my fault.

Remember that brilliant free kick Stoichkov scored against the Germans at the 94' US World Cup...so in ecstasy I'm lounging on my bed with head toward the pillow...but somehow I missed it and ended up smashing my head in to the wall...couldn't move my neck at all for a couple of weeks after that...the irony was that Lechkov scored a brilliant header in this very game as well and I couldn't even aimed the pillow...😂😂😂..hopefully that story would help you at least a bit...and don't laugh too laud...its not good for your neck pain I presume..😛

Hahaha sharpe, no wonder they never picked you to play for Bulgaria.

Thanks for the well wishes everyone. The good news is that it feels significantly better today and I have most of my neck movement back. The bad is that I occasionally forget and make a sudden movement and it seizes up again when I least expect it. The the last time that happened was this morning when I was pushing a Nurofen out of a blister pack and one dropped to the floor so I instinctively tried to catch it - big mistake.

Anyway a couple more days and I should be good I hope.

The funny thing is by coincidence I ordered this massage gun thing off ebay last week and it was supposed to arrive yesterday and I was really looking forward to using it to try to loosen my neck up. But it didn't turn up on time, hopefully the postman comes today.

Ed, have you been to a chiropractor? I used to have pain in my neck and there was a musle that was squeezed somewhere where it shouldn't be. At the time I couldn't even tilt my head back. Went to a session, he put everything back to place and never had this issue again. Hope you get better, I know how painful it is!

No I haven't. I have been seeing a physio and in fact I have to go to an appointment right now which will hopefully be the last one I need. The neck still isn't 100% but at least I'm not getting random scorching pain every few minutes any more.

Glad to hear it helped and you're (mostly) better. Question though: what's a physio? Is it like a physical therapist?

Its short for physiotherapist, which sounds like the same thing you're referring to. They deal with muscular injuries and rehab from torn ligaments and stuff like that.

Let us know how it goes Ed! And if it doesn't work out, please go to chiropracter! It helped me and haven't had that pain in years. Used to give me migranes and stuff.

I'm not sure exactly what's the difference but isn't that just a fancy and modern term for a masseur...Ed?

Probably they call it ...a medical staff member in the States😀😛

Well they both give people a massage but a physio is much more qualified (5+ years at university) to do work on injury rehabilitation.

Oh and I got my massage gun which looks funny but it feels great especially on the neck and shoulders. Its like being punched repeatedly very fast and it loosens the muscles up really well.

Yeah I suspected this might be the case..just wasn't sure physios have study for so long...you definitely want someone with a degree twisting your neck around..I guess😉

Good to hear it's an effective tool Ed..money well spent apparently.

Be careful everybody...Ed is armed now...😉

Although not exactly a blaster...but troublemakers risking being massaged...😂😂.. 6-th speed must be like a shock therapy..😛

yeah it is like Ed says...

the physiotherapist is just a better masseur
who only did a 3 year vocational training

in contrast, the orthopedist has a university degree
and is a real doctor...that is the place to go if you got
some serious injuries

Haha the one I have looks the same as in the picture but it has 20 speeds. I'll let you know if I rob a bank with it slim!
