I have had neck pain almost my whole life. I wake up every morning with some sort of pain and a lot of times I have a bad headache. Certainly not a way I like to start my days. I have tried everything from warm compresses to Tylenol and nothing takes it away or really even eases it. I think this pain is stemming from a car wreck I was in when I was 23 years old. Ugh. It also seems like whenever the weather changes (especially when it gets colder), my neck flares up big time.
Neck pain can really wear someone down, big time. My shoulders are always stiff and hard feeling. Not very comfy, let me tell you. Maybe I need something more specific like a neck pain pillow. I have been looking at those too. There are a lot of options when it comes to pillows, you just have to research and pick what is right for you and your condition, if you have one.
There are a lot of ways to treat your back pain too. Just talk to your doctor first and foremost and decide where to go from there and what back pain treatment is best for you. I know next time I am in to see my doctor, we will be discussing this issue, again, sigh!
Do you have neck or back pain? If you do, what do you do to relieve the pain? I would love to know…
