hi everyone,
any ideas on how to remedy neck pain? the top 3 vertebra in my neck are the source of much pain and frustration. this pain is more annoying than knee pain. at least people can see when you're having knee pain (ie you're not walking right). neck pain just makes me pissy and no one seems to know why.
vicodin just cuts it 20-30%
thanks for the ideas.

I have bulging discs in those areas and I have cortisone injections to help alleviate the pain and the nerve pain. It's not the same as RA but I can relate to the neck pain. EVERYTHING we do involves the neck to some degree so when things get a bit wonky in there it can make you miserable. Maybe you can ask your doc about these injections. I have mine administered by a neurologist and I typically get 3 a year. It is guided by xray and it doesn't hurt, just feels a bit weird when the medicine goes in - sort like a really warm feeling down my arms. It can also help reduce inflammation in that area.
