Discussions that mention valium

General Health board

I agree with the lymph node theory. I went to the ER some years back because I thought I had meningitis. My neck hurt like the dickens and I couldn't move it a bit. The swolen glands had caused the muscles in my neck to tighten. The doctor gave me a scrip for valium, which completely took care of the discomfort, and a few days later I was back to normal.

It can't hurt to get it checked out, especially if it doesn't go away quickly, but in all likelyhood it's swolen glands. Good luck and hope you feel better soon!
