I have been under a lot of stress, my Dad was in the hospital again, but is doing ok now. My Mom was just diagnosed with Lung Cancer. I am the only one that handles things like this for them, which is leaving my neck in constant spasms. I have been going for PT but even there they are doing less exercises with me because of the spasms. Since Saturday night, when I swallow water or food I am feeling it in my neck. I am not sure who to see for this, or just to continue taking the muscle relaxers and hope things get better soon. I have stopped taking painkilers because they were making me nauseous, but am in quite a bit of pain. Any suggestions on who I should see, or what I should try? Was thinking of accupuncture? My surgery was on Aug 24.
Thanks for any suggestions you may have,
