I wouldnt normally make a thread like this, but to be honest im quite desperate and tired from nights of no sleep.

On tuesday morning i woke with a heck of pain in my neck, so on tuesday night i changed my pillow, to see if it was down to that, but days later it hasnt gone. I went to see my doc on friday morning, and he diagnosed, spasmodic torticolllis. Its not serious, in fact its not serious at all, but i hoping someone can give me tips on how to get rid of it. Its very very painful, and the neckpain is shooting into the right side of my head, and ive got this constant headache.
Im using a heat pack and a ice pack, and freeze spray as well as cocodamol i cant use ibuforen gel, because im allergic to it.
God, please could someone help me, this is awful.
thanking in advance.

It could be a trapped nerve, in which case there is not much that can be done apart from stretching.

thanks, any particular one? french, german, english?

Ricky, i can never tell when your being serious or not.

Off course your not being serious, how would swallowing mustard help my neck?
If you were joking youve cheered me.

First, must say I agree with one of the members post. Doctor's Wife should know better.

Second, you shouldn't change your avatar. I always thought the other one was your photo and you have beautiful eyes.


Last thing, I think your problem could be stress.

Try it, it will relieve leg cramping and muscle cramping in other places too. so I am guessing that it may work for this. Any mustard that contains turmeric will work. Turmeric is a MAO inhibitor which causes a release of a morphine type chemical by the body.

I know that the flower of a white clover works on central nervous system pain but there aren't any around here this time of the year. That does it a little different way.

Try the mustard, what have you got to loose. It can make you constipated if you do it too much.

Yeah, that was mean of them. I'm sorry you are suffering.

I would sit in a chair with my back strait and slowly stilt my heard to the side and very gentle and slow, roll your head around like you are making a giant circle over your head to stretch your neck muscles.

Good luck.

Sorry to hear you are suffering so badly. I had posted a thread several months ago on here about Upper Cervical Chiropractic care. Doing a quick search of your Dx with upper cervical, there were several results that said it could greatly improve your symptoms. The link to that thread is in my signature and it provides a link to the National organization, as well as a search engine for docs around you. .

I haven't been back to the doc in several months since my last appointment and remain pain free- a complete miracle in my eyes. I could go on and on about how wonderful it has been for me because it actually changed my life so much for the better. My prayers are with you and I hope you find some relief soon.

I would suggest you gently massage the area while you are taking deep breaths. More importantly, if you resist, it will persist. Don't fight the pain and don't victimize yourself because that happens when one is in a lot of pain. Have a neutral state of mind. Massage the area and take deep breaths. I guarantee you will feel better. I would massage you myself but the doctor might get jealous

Aspirin is the most effective pain reliever available and is also a great anti-inflammatory. If there is no allergy issue, I would suggest Enteric coated Aspirin per the label.

Hot showers, focusing the water onto your neck with as much pressure as possible is also effective. Do this 3-4 times per day. You can also follow up with a cold pack on the neck.

There are a myriad of over the counter products that can also help - things like Ben Gay, Flexall, ect. Find one with a high menthol content. Capacesin also can be effective in this regard though menthol is more effective for deep tissue pain.

Mobility is also very important. Doing basic neck and shoulder rolls for a minute or two every hour or so can really help.

If all else fails call your doctor and ask for a prescription for a medication called "Tramadol" - I think the brand name is "Ultram". It is non-narcotic and very, very effective for the headaches associated with neck issues and the headaches.

As for the basis of my advice: I broke my neck in high school football and have had lifelong issues with my neck and shoulder. I deal with the pain you are describing on a daily basis.

Again, thank you, i have tramadol because of on going crohns disease. T o be honest, they havnt really touched it. I will try and do stretch though, even if it hurts.
