Hey guys, I was wondering if you could provide me with some advice. Here's my story; after a long trip to Italy with my girlfriend I found myself sleeping through out train/bus rides which caused me a stiff neck, after that followed pain through out my back. It's been about 7 weeks now and I haven't had any real progress and I'm still in a lot of pain. I'm having trouble sleeping plus just generally getting on with life and it's really getting me down. My back pops and makes noises all the time and my back muscles have become really stiff. All the doctors have told me not to worry and just provided me pain killers and to just get on with things but it's never that simple when you're the one in constant pain. I've made an appointment with a chiropractor next week, as no one will now help me after numerous appointments through the nhs, I'm having to pay privately, being a student this is not what I can really afford but my health needs to come first.I'm only 22 and need some advice on what to do. Hope your all ok and would really appreciate some words of wisdom!
