I have a horrible stiff neck. It is on the fourth day now and not getting better. I used heat, but nothing helps. What should or could I do to aleviate this. It is driving me nuts!!!!! The only thing I did different, was I had a yard sale the other day , and it was really cold. I might have kept my body tense trying to stay warm or something. I just don't know what happened to it.

My chiropractor would smack me upside my head ( ouch!) for using heat on a stiff or sore muscle. Try a cold compress. Cold will reduce the swelling associated with the stiffness.

is the neck the only part that hurts? Do you have a head ache also? Maybe a call to your MD is in order.

I hate those!

I just try to massage the area often with oil and put a heating pad on it. It takes days for it to loosen up.

Maybe you did it in your sleep. I did that twice, I could barely move my neck and had to have a chiropractor crack it.

Try the cold compress. Also stretch that neck. I know it will hurt but you need to move it and work out the stiffness.

Just wanted to let you gals know how much I appreciate all the support here for my neck and to let you know I am much better now. It is still sore, but at least I can move it now. Have a great day.

Go see someone, because it could lead to something more serious, or more pain... drop by the doc's office. Sometimes heat can make the pain worse.
