I think I might have a trapped nerve in my neck and shoulder area

What can I do to fix it please?

Rest, warmth, if you can afford it see a chiropractor.

mine stayed for a week then went as quickly as it came! nothing really worked but good excuse for massage!

No chance of rest as DH has had to go into work to see if he has a job.

Paracetomol might have to do.

Thank you.

Alternate hot and cold compresses should help the pain.

I second a chiropractor if you can.

Hope your DH still has a job, sounds scary.

No news from DH yet. sad

The best thing for this is those giant plaster that you stick on your neck and they heat up. Also take ibuprofen and buy some arnica gel which is great for pain relief

Make sure you buy the ones that can be stuck on the skin - one make is only to be put on clothing and is useless

Deep Heat works well on this, if you can stand the smell!

Hope you feel better soon.
