)) I am still having trouble with neck pain despite attending physio once every 2 weeks. Some days the pain is worse and I have stopped taking Amitryptiline pills as they were causing me to have very bad tremors in both hands more pronounced on left. Spinal Surgeon wishes to carry out denervation to lumbar region as he feels nerves may be the cause of tremors and neck pain. I am due to have a Brainscan next week as my Neurologist wishes to ensure that the blood supply to that area is okay. I quite often get cracking sounds when I turn my head!!
I played top class soccer and golf also taught golf for many years. Live in UK.
