Common Questions and Answers about Neck pain early pregnancy

pain

I am on my second pregnancy and six months along. I have been on loratab 7.5 pretty much my whole pregnancy due to sever damage in my neck and lumbar spine from a car accident, my baby is laying low in my pelvis in the breach position causing my Fybromyalgia to flair up really bad, I think that your remarks are disrespectful, closed minded, ignorant, and you seem to have a lot of nerve passing judgment on woman when you really have no idea what ''we'' are going through and dealing with.
Have the worst stiff neck today. It started yesterday and I was like nooooooo! I remember how bad this gets because it happened one other time before... In my tww on my bfp cycle. I chalked it up to stress (probably was) due to visiting my son in rehab and doing the "family counseling" sessions with my mom and sis too (train wreck lol). I'm sure it's just stress related again. After all-- we are coming off a very busy holiday and I had many houseguests.
I have a long rather unpredictable cycle. I took a pregnancy test the day before halloween that was faintly positive and at my sonogram on Nov. 15, 2006 I measured 5 weeks 5 days.... so in a since I found out really early... and it's gonna be a long pregnancy... I did notice, starting last week that my stomach and abdominal muscles have been really sore lately along with the sore breasts.
I have a buldging disc in my lower back and neck. I am 13wks pregnant, the pain is so severe at times I take a hydrocodone 5/500 for the pain. I try to limit myself to 1 or 2 a week. Is this going to harm my baby?
I have had severe back and neck pain for 7 years. After dozens of alternative treatments the only one that helped was medication. I have been taking Methadone 60mg/day(and sometimes more) for several years. My husband and I wanted to have a child, so I started weening myself. I had gotten to 2 or 3 10mg doses/day, with plans to keep going down. The pain is managable some days but very severe some.
He dont like the idea of sending me to one when he can do it himself, it does give me relief in my back because I have problems with my neck also due to this injury. But it never lasts long and the pain always comes back. Now acupuncture is something I have not even considered and sounds like it would be worth a try...I have heard of it before but only for smokers trying to quit...thankis for the advice. My husband told me to be honest with her too...
Neck and shoulder pain is fairly common during pregnancy. However, it should never be ignored. Early in pregnancy, it can signal a complication such as an ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy that develops outside the uterus). This is considered a medical emergency and needs to be treated immediately. If you are in the early stages of your pregnancy, I would recommend speaking to your doctor right away.
It's not a sharp pain, it's more dull and achy. I also have pain in my neck and on my right side. Has anyone experienced that so early before?
But now I know I'm not alone. I have a herniated disc in my back and another one in my neck.........I take pain meds for my pain.....I am taking oxycodone 5/325 mg.......i have been taking this since my failed surgery in December of 2005. I am in terrible pain without the meds. i have been pregnant twice now and miscarried twice. My fear is this........are these meds causing my miscarriages?.........I go through terrible times when I dont take my meds.....
it is extremely tough to go through the pain of pregnancy even without the problems that caused you to be put on pain meds....I know this for a fact as I was pregnant both before and after the accident that caused my chronic pain issues. Now, I'm 34 years old and somehow, pregnant again. I broke my back and neck shortly after the birth of my 10 year old son. I was only on pain meds for a while until I got older, then the pain became constant and unbearable.
Has anyone in early pregnancy experienced a painful stiff neck and back...my back and neck have had a stiff pain in them the last 2 days or so. Just curious...it may very well be from all the stress i have been under.
Signs and Symptoms Ectopic pregnancy can be difficult to diagnose because symptoms often mirror those of a normal early pregnancy. These can include missed periods, breast tenderness, nausea, vomiting, or frequent urination. The first warning signs of an ectopic pregnancy are often pain or vaginal bleeding. You might feel pain in your pelvis, abdomen, or, in extreme cases, even your shoulder or neck (if blood from a ruptured ectopic pregnancy builds up and irritates certain nerves).
I'm only 10 weeks 5 days and I have been having horrible neck, back, and hip pain. I'm confused, since I haven't gained any substantial weight. (Maybe 5 pounds?) Is this normal or cause for alarm? Also, any ideas for relief? I'm worried about taking any medications, so any advice from experience would be greatly appreciated.
I made an appt with my doc to see me early because I had a previous m/c and I had been having some cramping and RT shoulder pain. If they catch an ectopic pregnancy early they can treat the tubal with a methotrexate shot instead of having to remove a tube. If you are worried I would call your doc just to make sure. Good luck!!
Please do not, under any circumstances, try to ignore bleeding accompanied by severe pain, or any severe pain even on its own, during early pregnancy. Click here if you need to know more about ectopic pregnancy. Placenta Praevia In late pregnancy it can sometimes happen that the placenta is still lying low in the womb instead of having migrated upwards, as it should. In such a case, the baby's route down the birth canal is blocked by the placenta.
I had mine at 2 cm too and everything went so smoothly....everyone is diffrent....it never wore off or slowed my contractions down. I was in labor for 7 hours...
Alcohol consumption leads to Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. Pain pills, heroin, methadone and Suboxone, if not tapered during pregnancy, will leave the baby addicted at birth. Cocaine use can lead to insufficient blood supply to the baby and death of the fetus in the womb. If you quit before you are pregnant, none of these will be a concern. You will not have to worry about telling anything to the obstetrician or midwife, and you will not have to worry about what they may suspect.
I woke up this morning with a stiff neck an lots of pain. My neck an shoulder hurts so bad that I can move my head or lift my left arm. I have used my massager, got my hubby to rub it, an took a hot shower. ( I put the shower head on massage) Needless to say it did not help. What can I take or use that is safe for my baby? Thanks an God Bless.
Pam, Hey! That doctor is not a bit understanding!!! You think if he's not going to answer any of our questions, he could at least give us hope! He did the same thing to me, he didn't answer any of my questions & told me to go to a doctor! He just made me more scared! I'm glad he isn't the only person who responds! Everyone else on here is great & so very helpful & understanding! I took tylenol pm when I was pregnant with my little girl & my OB said it was fine.
I had a CT scan 13 months ago and everything came back negative, but should I have another one done if the head, neck, and facial pain persist. I was told that eye doctors sometimes are the first ones to diagnose a brain tumor and I just saw mine in February and he said erveryhting was fine. Could it be that I have a head cold and the coughing and constant sniffing are causing the headaches? I am just worried and confused?
I then had a left arm carpal tunnel release after severe throbbing L arm, shoulder, collarbone neck pain. The release revealed a congenitial BD known as a persistent median artery which runs parallel to the median nerve. It's also an extra artery with an extremely strong blood flow and pulse. Visited many cardiologists and vascular surgeons who all suggested cervical rib removal to provide more space for the artery as it traveled down my L. arm.
I'm 4 weeks and 2 day pregnant. I'v been having adbominal pain and cramps since before and still having them is that normal? My whole right side from my neck all the way down to my feet has been in alot of pain & diffcult to walk and tylenol doesn't make the pain stop is that normal?
I have no pain in the nodes themselves but have developed pain in the neck which seems like a stiff neck, and pain exists with any pressure from straining or lifting, also movement related pain in neck, chest and spine in the same region. No signs of infection at all, but do have extreme fatigue, back pain, some weight loss, among other varied symptoms. My Primary Dr said since no other enlarged nodes were found in other regions, he is not concerned about lymphoma.
try not worry.. if pain gets that worse speak to gp who will arrange early scan to make sure... on plus side on my last pregnancy i had achy time but fab labour..
For a few years now, I've been getting a red blotchy chest/neck rash in circumstances where I - am drinking alcohol, anxious, nervous, excited, upset - really feeling just about any emotion. It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can. I had read once that taking Niacinimide could help - and I've been taking about 1000mg of it for a few months, but am not seeing much improvement.
Has anyone ever taken morphine extended release while pregnant and if so what was you experience? I have been suffering from neck pain for 2 years now.

I have done all of the above; Physical Therapy, Chiropractic, message, heat, ice, exercising, I can go on and on and on but I will bore you.

Today my cramping and lower back and neck pain is very painful hard to walk around and do things. I did start bleading a little more at first light this morning and then heavy and now nothing. I don't know what this is but I am in a lot of pain and just know this is nothing like any of my other bad periods. Please help I am not sure if I should go to the docs or take a home pregnancy test.
