My boyfriend is 20 years old and has been experiencing cervical pain for some time now. He is a painter and works with heavy objects alot and brushes off his pain because of it, but his symptoms worry me. He comes home complaining of neck pain every night. I've been noticing that AT LEAST once a week the pain goes from his usual neck pain to headache, he begins feeling really hot, sore all over, and will usually end up throwing up. There is absolutely nothing I can do to help him when it happens, and none of the medicine he has taken has helped. He has been to a chiropractor who told him there is something wrong with one of the discs, but he refuses to go back there, or to a doctor. The longer this goes on, the more worried I get, if you have any idea what this could be PLEASE let me know.
