I go through bouts where I have nothing but the back of my neck be sore to the touch, where the neck and skull meet is sore, and the on the sides and top just nervy achy pain on the scalp. Sometimes it is sore a little to touch it when it is bad. Also this pain is felt in the middle between my shoulder blades and on my shoulders.
What works most for me is a Soma and a .5 Klonopin, and before that a reg. strength Vicdoin, I space them out, but I don't feel proper relief till the klonopin has been taken as the third resort.
I also lay down in bed on my back with an ice pack behind my neck and or on top of my head and just relax for 45 mins but I end up falling asleep, and I want to be able to stay up during the day you know.
I have noticed when I do get out of the house and move it is less noticeable or relieved for the most part, but lately I have been relaxing and not moving much. I just got off for summer and have been trying to catch up on relaxing. I just can't imagine having to move all day in order to maintain a low level of pain. It just isn't natural you know?
My PAC said I could try taking the ES Vicodin that I was instructed originally to take once at night , as I have more pain then. However she said to try once mid day dose and try the ES and see if it helps more. As there isn't any use suffering.
Anyone have a similar problem, what meds do you take to help it? , and what non medical stuff do you do to improve it? And what do your doctors say about this?
Is this a common thing that can happen to neckies?
