Hi guys,
have some horrible neck pain today.  I was pretty achy yesterday, in my neck and right arm....nothing unusual.  Then last night I woke with really intense neck pain, I can't really move my neck.  It feels to me like a pinched nerve??????  But am not sure why it would have started with aching etc yesterday??  I thought neck injuries were usually more of a sudden thing???  Heading to the dr this morning.  But was just wondering if anyone has had anything similar that has been related to their ms?

Hey Kas

Awww...i'm so sorry! :( I hope it gets better for u soon! Back and neck pain can be a real prob...can't always really pin point. I'm glad to know u'r going to the doc and i hope they'll be able to give u some relief. I've not heard of this type pain directly as a result of ms, but then i could be wrong. Please let us know what the docs say. Take really good care friend.

Hi Kas,
    Please let us know what you find out at the doctor.  I hope it goes away quickly for you, how awful not to be able to move your neck!  My husband has pain in the neck and shoulders from spasticity issues, but he also had back problems that contribute to it too.  Maybe you have a pinched nerve or somehow just slept wrong??  I did that a few months ago, slept wrong, couldnt move my head for a week!  Hoping you feel better soon.

Hi Rhonda and Kimber,

cheers for your thoughts!
Went to the doctor this morning...he thinks it's just a strain and pinched nerve. Got Voltaren, and going to an osteopath. Very relieved, I was scared it may have been a freaky relapse!! He has said that the extra stress on my body etc could make my other symptoms flare up a bit for a while.....but shouldn't go further than that!

I'm so paranoid now that every little illness/injury could be the start of a new flare......I guess it's all part of it!

My beautiful sister has been over to take care of the kids for me, so have been able to rest. Will have to think of something nice to do for her.
