Can a chronic stiff neck be due to cervical disk problems?
Two weeks ago I woke up with a stiff neck that still bothers me till this day. I have trouble facing right or left. My scalene, SCM, and trapezius muscles are rock hard to the touch. My head is also jutting forward. No tingling or burning though. Is it time to visit the doc? Sucks being uninsured or else I wouldn't be asking this question.
I've dealt with lower back pain (sciatica) successfully by myself by stretching and strengthening. Still makes an appearance here and there.
