I am 36 and my name is Anna.
Recently I experienced the most awful pain on the back of /and right hand side of my neck. I woke a few weeks ago
with a stiff neck and by the night time it was becoming crampy so went to bed with co-dydramol.
In the early hours of the morning I woke with extreme cramp in that area and every time I even breathed surged again.
So called dr out and she gave me oramporph and diazepam.
Later in week had xray and physio. Physio helped ime got release the neck a bit as by now I was frozen left.
A few days later I woke yet again with the spasm and this time called an osteopath who worked wonders. I will be seeing her tomorrow.
Xrays revealed degenerative bone disease between C5/C6 and C6/C7. Dr said nothing at this stage could do. Great.
Probably due to me having being on prenisolone continually for years for severe asthma. So could well have weakened my bones he said.
Now I can turn my neck but its stiff and aches and cannot get comfy at night.
