Yes, I was wondering the same thing. A stiff neck is one of my symptoms that never seems to completely go away. Even when I feel my best, I still have a tight sensation in the back of my neck. I have had a neck MRI as well and there was nothing found on the MRI to be causing my pain. I have tried an alternative therapy similar to accupuncture which does ease the pain but again the pain/stiffness never seems to totally go away!
When I have a herx/flare up my neck pain comes out with a vengenance.
