What is wrong with my neck? I need help.

Hi there,
I need some help in figuring out what is wrong with my neck. To start of with I have Spondylolisthesis and sciatica. I will likely be having surgery for it and have an appointement with my surgeon in 2 weeks. But for the past few months I have had a really sore neck. It has gotten a whole lot worse in the past couple of weeks. The pains (like my lower back) seems to be more to the right and it hurts to move it in any direction, nothing is comfortable. I will be talking to my surgeon about this and asking for an MRI but for the time being I would really appreciate any input. THanks for your help. Kristy.

Maybe it's something as simple as stress tightening your shoulder and neck muscles. I know my stress tends to go directly there, and if it builds up without relief (a good massage) it can be really painful. Also, have you changed the way you sleep or your pillow lately? I've had times where if I slept funny, I didn't feel it immediately when I woke up, it just kind of crept up on me during the day, and my neck would get so stiff I couldn't turn it. I would usually take a week of heat and cold packs, and some massage to get it back to normal.

I sure hope it's something very simple and fixable. Good luck with your upcoming surgery. I had surgery for spondy coupled with some other problems almost 4 weeks ago and am doing really well. Take your recovery really slow!

Take care,
