    side-to-side neck pain

    For 4 months i've had a specific neck pain. It hurts when i move my head straight back, and it *really* hurts when i try to move my head from side to side (ear to shoulder on both sides).

    Yesterday i tried stretching it, and that made it *much* worse.

    When i move my neck side to side (ear to shoulder) the pain is on both sides of my neck -- sometimes radiating down into my shoulder.

    I think i've finally got to see a doctor about this, but unsure what type i should go to. A rheumatologist? A different specialist?

    Thank you for your help!

    Re: side-to-side neck pain

    If you are seeing a specialist, you might consider seeing a spine specialist. This could be either a fellowship-trained orthopedic spine or neuro surgeon. From your brief description, it sounds like a cervical spine issue. No one will be able to tell you much without some which case you could probably start out with your primary care physician.
