Sore neck stretches

Common Questions and Answers about Sore neck stretches


Avatar f tn I have had a sore neck for almost week (since 9/9) with headaches, I have had headaches before, but the stiff neck is new. no other health problems. is this something serious? or should i wait it out, i do not have any insurance. I am 27, and a full time nursing student, so I am use to long hours at the computer and reading books. I was worried about menigitis but without a fever I feel that I would be wasting money to see a Doctor, but I dont want it to get worse it that is what it is.
Avatar n tn I have had a stiff neck before because I work at a computer all day and have two little ones at home but it has never lasted this long. It seems high in my neck and the muscles are sore all the way in the front of my neck and up my head. When I try to turn my head from side to side I get a sharp pain.
429700 tn?1308011423 I am in constant neck pain no matter how many stretches I do I am always in spasm. I can't turn my neck easily to the lefty. My left is my weak side.
Avatar n tn I went back to bed and they still were sore when I woke up. I am not large (34 a/b) and they did feel less sore as the day went on but were sore again when I woke up the next day. They don't hurt as much now but kinda feel tender right along the underwire bra. It's not just one boob but both? Any ideas? Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn Hi, I believe the bulging disc is in the C5,6 region and causing continuous pain down my left arm and shoulder. My lower neck is also continually sore. I believe the terminology has been 'degenerative disc disease'. A series of 3 shots have been recommended directly into the affected area and if that does not help then surgery has been suggested. I have been going to physical therapy and using a device that stretches the neck. It helps temporarily but the pain always comes back.
Avatar f tn I'm 29w+3d & a ftm. I've been sleeping on my sides, occasionally on my back, but my hips get sore sleeping on my sides causing me to toss & turn from side to side all night. I have a body pillow & a tempur pedic mattress, & this only happens at night. I don't have soreness during the day, even though I teach & am on my feet all day. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn I've had sore shoulder muscles for the past couple of weeks, and I have a job where I do a lot of computer work, so I am sitting quite a bit.
Avatar n tn At first I could have swore it was a cyst or something, but had an mri and it was normal. So it was deduced to be bad muscle tension. Have been doing neck stretches, physiotherapy, massage therapy, but cannot seem to get it to where it should be. Anyone else have this kind of thing? I think some of it may be caused by my fundoplication surgery which may be affecting my breathing (causing shallower breaths), but also some of it is due to stress.
Avatar f tn Just over a year ago, my neck starting hurting quite badly on the left side. I figured I had pulled something and went to a Physiotherapist to correct the problem. The people at this practice decided that the problem was actually not in the neck per say, but in the scapula muscle on the left side of my back. They took X-rays and confirmed that there was nothing wrong with my spine, so that it had to be muscular. So they massaged, clicked and accupunctured me with only small bouts of relief.
Avatar f tn -I have tried heat, Ice, massage, creams, acupuncture, a cervical neck collar, gentle neck stretches. -The pain is worse when I am laying on my pillow, when I wake up in the morning, and when I sit. The pain gets so bad I end up sleeping around 6-7pm, and waking up around 4-6am. I have lost my appetite, I do not want to move when I am in severe pain.
Avatar n tn I had a full thyroidectomy 3 weeks ago and I have a "hard" spot in the middle of my neck right above the incison which feels sore to the touch. I am having trouble swallowing and feel a tightness across the front on my throat I have to look down to swallow food and drink. It is getting a little better since I have been doing neck stretches but the hard spor is still there. The surgeon told me to massage the area with cocoa butter (I have very bad keloids as well).
Avatar m tn during the physio therapy the therapist popped/minipulated my back, i was soo sore and couldnt walk properly, i didnt go back to the physio sessions as i became very ill after a few days i'l explain later, i also noticed my entire back pops and cracks on movements.
682891 tn?1226696230 The pain stretches from my shoulders and neck to my waist and even my legs and in my hands too; the pain can last for up to 15 mins. It is so bad I have to stop everything I'm doing to deal with the pain. I even had to pull over once while driving because it was so painful. I don't know what to do and could really use some answers, can it get any worse?!?
Avatar n tn I end up having so much neck pain when the migraine is beginning to go away (muscular as well) that when I am rubbing the back of my neck and turning my head side to side I hear this crunching and grinding in my spine at the base of my skull where my brain stem leads into it. The day after a migraine, my neck is so sore and stiff it has a slightly numbing feel to it. (Every time I mention my neck pain, I am specifically talking about the spine part of my neck at the base of my skull.
Avatar n tn I think the tight chest/ restrained breathing could be from my bad back? And also i have a tight neck... i think its because of my tight back. My neck and bck could be from my computer posture. I spend alot of time on it and i have a laptop.. so my back is always bent... My breathing only sometimes restrained and happens after physical activitie. My numbness is in left foot, sometime right, and lower gluc's (sp). i know.. alot of problems.. and ive seen doctors.
358304 tn?1409713092 And about 2 weeks ago, May 21st to be exact, I was at work and developed a sore neck. It was REALLY bad the next day, but I had full range of motion, it just was really sore. It got better about 6 days into it, but would still come in spurts. Now, my lower back has been getting kind of stiff throughout the day, and the past 3 days I've been experiencing a tingling in my lower left stomach near my hip. Strange. But it only lasts for a few seconds.
Avatar m tn I to have same problem with my neck I had philosophy after two sessions it was a lot better neck stretches help I was doing ok till two days ago spent 20mins on my rowing machine and the pain is back I allso do a lot of knitting, I realised I need do do neck stretches first .
Avatar n tn My dr has perscribed muscle relaxers, I'm seeing a chiropractor, a massage therapist and doing stretches for the front neck muscles. I get temporary relief from all of it, but nothing that lasts. My dr has also said anxiety (I think we all have anxiety because of how we feel!) and muscle tension - which I don't doubt, but something has to be causing it.
Avatar m tn have periods of severe tics(as diagnosed by doctor but no reason given) of right side of neck,i seem to throw head back and up continueously ,it stretches the muscsle in my neck and tends to mess with my throat and confuses my swallowing.
Avatar n tn It sounds to me like your headaches and shoulder pain are coming from your neck--specifically the neck muscles and more specifically the scalenes, and SCM muscles, probably with some help from the upper traps. you get his prblem from forward head posture--quite common in today's day and age of computers. You should get a book by Clair Davies called the Trigger Point Therapy Workbook. Read the head & neck and shoulder sections and then go to work.
358304 tn?1409713092 I've been pain free from that for about 2 weeks maybe? Now the past week my neck has been hurting AGAIN. But this time JUST my neck and shoulders area. My neck muscles feel as if they are took weak to hold up my head. That's what it feels like, and also I feel that the muscles on the base of my skull/neck are TIGHT. When I turn my head left and right slowly, I can hear a sound that I can only describe like "grains of sand" or "muscle fiber noises". Is this just tension?
748543 tn?1463449675 One of the most difficult concepts to get across to my TMD patients and other doctors is the connectivity of the Jaw and the Neck. In fact, it is my strong belief that TMD/TMJ should really be classified as a Craniocervical Disease and hence fall under the umbrella of medical coverage rather than treated strictly as a dental problem. To the Neuromuscular-minded dentist, "Occlusion" is an extension of general Postural Consideration.
Avatar n tn This time it happened much quicker, starting on the right lower eye, then moved to the left. The right under eye is very red, sore and dry. It feels so rough to touch. I have not worn make up today and have only applied vaseline and aqeous cream. I haven't changed any toileteries or make up in the last 2 months. I am not sure what it could be? I don't think it is eczema, but believe it could be an allergic reaction to something. I can't seem to work out what it could be?
Avatar n tn Had a pain clinic doc tell me burning and sore running down my arm caused by the nerves at c5/6 were blocked and causing the neck shoulder pain have had a epidural steriod injection big improvement,another this Friday 5th and I hear it will make a much bigger difference. I take neurontin 900mg three times a day muscle relaxants and pain meds but im way way better since the diagnoses and first shot. I use a water pillow love it!! Dont give up! I also stopped the phys ther it was aweful.
Avatar n tn A few days ago I noticed a sore, reddish swollen lump on my left inner thigh, right along my bikini line. It has since gotten larger (about the size of a nickel, and more elongated now). It only feels sore if I press on it or rub against it. It seems like a soft lump that moves around with the skin. Last night I applied a warm washcloth to it for about 30 minutes, which made it feel better. Could this be a swollen lymph node, or maybe an ingrown hair?
Avatar f tn When this happens, I will feel a pins and needles type tingling from actually right below my jaw bone, covering the entire left side of my face to the left of my eye and about a 1/3 of the way into my forehead on same side. This will intensify as the day goes on. Then my neck will hurt BAD! Again, always the left, from my shoulder blade, sort of up the back of my neck, to behind my left ear.
Avatar m tn I've had a stiff, sore neck as well as a sore upper back for some time now, but I thought that it was because of the way I was sleeping. It hasn't gone away and it's been about 6 months. My neck gets stiff sometimes, and I crack it which brings relief. Is this okay? Also, my biggest problem is that sometimes, when I stretch or do something, I hear a crack in my neck or back and a sharp, shooting pain hits me in the lower right-side part of my head.
Avatar m tn The pain on average when looking left/right is a 6 and at an angle, maybe an 8 or 9 of the worst neck pain I've ever felt. ie; stiff neck, sore neck from sports or something similar.
