Around Oct 2012 I felt a ache in my neck while I was doing some work which involed me looking down with my head sitting down. After this happened I was in pain any time I would do anything that involves looking down with my head, eating, reading etc. But also any-time I would sit up straight in a chair I would feel uncomfortably after about 1 Min.
So when this happened I did the usual things putting ice/cold on my neck and going for long walks as often as I could. I saw the Pyhsio in December and she said my neck was hurting because I was not flexible enough and the muscles where too weak. So she gave me some stretches to do and told me to start swimming. So now I have been swimming for 2-3 months but my pain is getting worse and worse as the weeks go by, I have tried to do different strokes and cut down on how much I do swimming incise it is aggravating my condition. I am going to start doing something in the gym instead but I cannot see it being better than swimming for my neck.
But the past few weeks I have been in agony most the day sometimes the pain is so bad I feel like crying, its been 5 months and I cannot even sit in any position without being in agony or look down with my head. I am thinking of going back to see the Pyhsio and request to get a MRI because it should not be getting worse as time goes by should it?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated or if anyone has had similar symptoms
