So about two weeks ago I woke up with a stiff feeling in my neck and put it down to just sleeping in an awkward position. Two weeks later I'm popping pain killers ever four hours. It's travelled down my arm and shoulder and it's keeping me awake at night. I have a doctors appointment this afternoon but I think they're just going to give me more painkillers and send me on my way. I literally can't stand the pain when I'm coming to the end of my four hours since the last painkillers and I'm a zombie from not sleeping. Any ideas?
If you can tolerate the naproxen then it might work but my dr wasn't at all surprised that I only lasted 3 days on it. The physiotherapist was great, she worked out exactly where the pain was coming from and sorted it out.
