I've had chronic neck pain for 5 years now and it seems there's no treatment for it.
So far I've tried Ibuprofen, Amitriptyline, Gabapentin, Pregabalin & Codeine Phosphate, Osteopathy, Acupuncture, Physiotherapy & Deep Massage. The only relief is from the Codeine but of course, that merely treats the symptoms, not the cause and furthermore it is addictive.
I’ve had an X-ray, visited a Rheumatology specialist and had a MRI scan – apparently no problems were found.
I’ve tried various exercises such as chin-tuck, rotation and stretching but the result was extreme pain for the next few days.
I am now at a loss as to what to do next.
