Hi my name is Tamra and I need some help. I woke up Thursday and my neck was sore at first I just thought I had slept on it wrong so I rotated ibuprofen and acetominophen every couple of hours. The pain kept getting worse by Thursday night the pain was in my neck shoulders and upper back, a sharp achy pain. I can't move my neck down or side to side. The pain was so bad my husband took me to the ER. They said I was probably having a muscle spasm. They gave me a shot of valium and sent me home with valium and Lortab. I still have got no relief from any of the medicine. My husband has given me massages and still no relief. I can't bend over and he has to help me out of bed. On top of that Saturday I became very congested and started have chills and hot flashes, but no fever. My thoart is sore as well. Any ideas? I would greatly appreciate it.

Hope that helps and good luck, PhysioAdvisor
