I'm sitting at work, and the muscle on the left side of my neck is really sore when I move it. I think I must have slept on it wirdly or something. When I get home I'm going to do the usual thing; put a hot water bottle on it etc. Thing is though, does anyone know anything I can do now to ease the pain?

And before some smart ass says don't seek medical advice from the pit, there is no way in hell I'm going to a doctor for something so trivial as a sore neck. So I'll come to the pit instead

Cheers

I vote stress or needing to move around more or both.

Just try to move it as little as possible.

mine is killing me too as we speak. Mine's in the middle, and probably stress realted because I've been strung out like crazy on confusing and such recently. Take two aleve. It should help. That's naproxen-sodium. Over the counter.

It smells fine. In this case IcyHot will actually help

Fill a new tube sock with white rice (tie the end) and nule it for two minutes, then put it on your neck. it works good

Get some arnica or something from the pharmacy if you can get time off to go there
Or alternatively just gently move your neck, don't make it hurt though

Thanks guys. No one said fap; is this a new record?!?! Annoyingly, it's pointless getting the afternooon off work, because I get a lift home with my mum so I'll be stuck in the cold nothing to do for two hours with a sore neck. I'll try and say I need to go to the pharmacy though, that should get some time off and hopefully help too.

And muffy green, that is on hell of an idea. I'm going to be trying that when I get home!
