after i woke up this morning my neck hurts, like a knife being stabbed into me. i think i slept wrong last night or something. this has happened to me before but not this bad. if i turn my head left and move up or down, it hurts.

what i want to know is if there is anyway to relieve this pain? i dont want to wait til tonight and have to sleep on it. Thanks

When this happens to me I usually just take a few painkillers and get a lavender heat-pack and put it on my neck. Major relaxation!

Is that really the most interesting thing you could think of to make a thread about?

Seriously, stop being a hypochondriac. Even I'm not that bad and I get concerned about minor cuts etc.

Grow up, all that's happened is you've pulled a muscle in your neck, which often hurts more than usual muscles because you use your neck more than you think, and there are lots of nerves in your neck.

End of.

It will be fine tomorrow or in a few days.

Here's a word of advice, stretch everytime you wake up, not in a rush though cause you have a chance of hurting yourself. And for now use heating pads, if problem persists them see a doctor.

Also my dad used to sleep "the wrong way" and suffer from neck pain, the doctor told him to sleep without a pillow, or sleep on a low pillow cause high ones are pulling your head up.

its not that i'm so concerned. i just want the pain when we go to a party today. i know it will get better tomorrow (i believe i said that implicitly) but i want to know if there's a way to get it better TODAY.

probably not a great idea to take pain killers- instead, lie flat on your back and rotate your neck, this will hurt a bit, but it will pass.

If stretching like this does not help, line yourself up against a door frame or wall and stretch similarly

and if that doesn't help...for god's sake see a doctor- it could be a symptom of numerous neurological syndromes!!!

Hope this helps and remember that the final one is pretty uncommon!!

I don't think it will go in a day.

Nonetheless, you could try massaging the muscle with your hands (or get a female accomplice to do so for you ) and use a heat pack as someone else said. If you can't get hold of said heat pack, a hot water bottle will do fine.

Also, taking a long bath helps alot.

Other than that, painkillers (codeine or cocodamol...anything you have that doesn't require a prescription...even paracetemol) and just try to avoid sudden movements i.e turning your head too fast (although it's a reaction to some things so often can't be avoided).

P.S as it's a party you're going to, and I'm hoping you're 18 (if UK) - alcohol will numb your senses to the pain
