I have a pinched nerve in my neck caused by my muscles. I have seen a neurologist and had and MRI and xray. Everything came back normal. I have been seeing a chiropractor for 3 months and it helps. I also get massages done w/ ultrasound and heat. The orginal pain was on my right side/ neck area. I seem to keep injuring my back in different areas. I was doing really well and felt like I was almost healed, then I lifted my son and pulled the left side/ middle back area. I am now experiencing a lot of pain and tightness in my neck. I have started taking muscle relaxers only at night since I injured the middle back area. This is now fixed. I am not sure if there is a medication that would help with my muscles. I am doing stretches, yoga, and light weight exercising the chiropractor has recommended, but even injured myself doing those too frequently w/ 2 lb weights. I feel like I get an adjustment or massage and feel good for a few days, then back to pain. I am also unable to sit comfortably. I have an appointment set with a Physical Med Specialist, but can't get in until the end of March. Is it normal to take this long to heal?
