I'm no doctor but with all the stress you are having now, I'd be surprised if your neck didn't hurt along with many other stress induced pains. My neck is always the first place that getting stressed affects! I hope you have a better day today Little Sister!

When I wake up in the morning I always kinda wonder ... What is gonna hurt this
day? I have stiff and sharp pains in my neck a lot. I don't report these to the
doctor but actually, symptoms like that are something the doctor should know.
Do you think he needs to know? Google would no doubt tell you to call your doc.
We kinda have the same things wrong with us, "little sister". We have painful
One thing that helps me is Xanax. When I start to get stressed about pain, I take
one and it mellows me out. I can't remember if you are taking anti-anxiety meds ...
but it's something to think about.
By the way, I am NOT saying that you have stress induced pain. However, my pain
always gets worse when I have to attend a family party or something -- way worse.

Yep, good ole stress tightens my neck up every time and then it works its way down to the shoulders. No Pam, doc can't read your mind-you must tell him what hurts & where at. Drs do not ssume alot, thank goodness or we would all be up the creek. lol Stress is very hard on the body in general. Hugs Susie

Kara I would think the percs would help with this neck pain. Try some moist heat and see if that helps. Susie
