neck problem

for over a week i have not been able to tilt my next to my left shoulder,at first i could barely tilt it, now i can tilt it almost all the way but it still hurts, and i try to crack it going that way but it hurts. I do sleep on the couch, and it started happening at work out of the blue, this would be the socond time this happened too, i dont feel anything else besides the pain and i can pin point the pain if i touch it.

any suggestions?

Re: neck problem

If it's getting better and not worse it sounds like a pulled muscle. Give it another few days and if it doesn't get even less painful or go away, go see the doctor.

Re: neck problem

I agree with A Rafferty - Get some different pillows for your couch (firmer ones). It takes a few days for the pain to pass but it will. Take Motrin as directed/tolerated.

Re: neck problem

Maybe it's a neck virus! (LOL!) I had the SAME problem for about 2 weeks or more! I knew it wasn't how I was sleeping because it would be fine in the morning and get worse as the day went on! When I first got it it was hard to sleep because it would actually just ache and ache! Advil helped that though - normally Advil or ANY pain reliever never helps me with anything! I couldn't tilt to the left (the right side of my neck would hurt)

Re: neck problem

i can tilt it now to my shoulder in a certain position but when i move it back, it hurts, but not to bad anymore, if i dont tilt, it dont hurt, shall i take pain relievers anyway or will it not help?

Re: neck problem

It helped mine to a point. I wouldn't take them unless you are having a problem like I was with driving. I drive a lot and every time I'd turn my head to the left it would kill me (along with TILITING it to the shoulder), that's when I'd take Advil too, but it didn't stop the hurting altogether.
