My brother is in the hospital having a feeding tube insterted because his neck muscles have constricted and his chin is pointing to the ceiling. He chokes when he eats or drinks. This has been getting worse and the doctor says hes never seen anything like it. Theyve done MRI and everything they can think of including botox injections and its still like that. He has some other symptoms like trembling and stuff but the neck thing is the strangest and hopefully someone somewhere has heard of something similar. Anything that the doctors might check would be helpful. We are getting desperate.:confused:

  • Some years ago I had like a muscle cramp running from my neck, down & across my shoulder blade.I was in terrible pain & couldn't straighten my neck.GP only gave me pain killers which was next to useless.I was in pain & couldn't sleep for about two weeks & took myself to Hospital.They gave me Vallium which relaxed the muscle & gave me relief.Gradually got better.In hightsight it was caused through work stress.
