Every now and again I wake up with a stiff neck, it’s a pain in the ass (or neck) but usually goes away in a day or two. This week I had similar symptoms (stiff neck, limited mobility) but it has gotten a progressively worse. The pain is less stiffness and more acute than usual, to add to that it has localized somewhat in my arm. This suggests a herniated cervical disc. If it doesn’t get better on it’s own by next week I’ll seek a doctor’s assistance…but any advice would be helpful. Here is what I am doing:
- sleeping w/ 1 pillow and flat
- lots of advil
Anyone know of a resource w/ rehab advice? or better yet preventative exercizes, i want to get rid of this once and for all.
