Muscle pain in the neck

Hello. Not sure I am in the right forum but will try to ask a question here.
I had a "severe" whiplash 7 years ago and since then I always feel pain in the neck ----tightness of muscles feel on one side -----and cannot sleep at night(sleep about 1-2 hours a night)/ I cannot rest my neck on the pillow on all sides----a nightmare -7 years like that and the suffering never ends.

Is it a muscular dystrophy? Since my doctor has never heard about people who cannot rest their neck on the pillow (to fall asleep of course)then I thought I would ask here?.
It's a tighness of the neck in one spot most of the time.

and if what I have is not muscular dystrophy, then what is muscular dystrophy? at this stage of my life, living and suffering non stop 24 hours a day from pain I would take any other illnesses than this pain that makes me -so sad. WOULDN'T YOU????
Hope to hear from you,
Appreciate.

Re: Muscle pain in the neck

Hi

I'm not an expert (I have LGMD) but all the years I've had MD I didn't and do not experience neck stiffness or pain.

There could be nerve damage. A friend of mine had a car accident some time ago and also had severe Whiplash becasue of this. After some time seing differend dr's the diagnoses was nerve damage.

Hope you find a solution to this soon

Mandy

Re: Muscle pain in the neck

it is very painful to have muscle pain in the neck. I think it it due to the several reasons. one may be the one due to the unhealthy exercise for bodybuilders.

Re: Muscle pain in the neck

I kind of know what you mean by painful. If I go sleep and turn into the wrong position (not easy to turn at all) I wake up with severe neck muscle pain. That only lasts for about 2 days

I assume bodybuilders overuse their muscles now or then (I could be wrong) and experience extreme whiplash could resort to damaged muscles I suppose

I hope in this case it is damaged muscles (sounds terrible I know) and not MD because living with MD takes a bit of your life away and maybe your neck problem will only be that and nothing else

I sincerely hope you get someone to help you and the next time you on the board it will be with positive news

M
