Anyone help me with a muscle problem in my neck. Answered

I cant take anti-inflammatory pain medication. I was told that a new pillow might help but I have tried two different ones and still no luck.



Sometimes your doctor can directly inject a numbing agent, such as lidocaine into the knot, this can provide comfort for several days while the muscle heals.

deep heat workes wonders! a hot water bottle is great on my back too! :)

. A rolled up towel under the neck works for me when I get sore. . A good massage should help a lot, but a bad massage may make it worse. Find someone that knows what they are doing.
