Do you have something that you can heat up to put on your neck? You can get oat pillows that you heat in the microwave, otherwise a hot water bottle or something?

Sometimes it helps to alternate something heated with something cold (bag of frozen peas wrapped in a towel) - 20 minutes hot, followed by 20 minutes cold - but I find that heat works better for me.

Hope it feels better soon.

See the doc, valium is the key. I did this not so long ago and it hurts like hell! Sympathy, sympathy. remember that you can take paracetamol and ibuprofen, interleave the doses and don't go over either recomended dose
