I have now gone through two cervical neck surgeries, and has been almost a year since the last surgery. Over the last couple of days the weather here has been colder than usual and my neck has been aching, best explaination would be it feels arthritic. The achiness is not enough to take pain pills or muscle relaxers, however it is very uncomfortable. Without having to go to the doctor and fork out a ton of money for him to only tell me to take 2 tylenol and call me in the morning. Does or would an anti-inflamatory like Aleve or Advil work?
