went to dr. he's pretty sure it's a pinched nerve in my neck and severe tmj. what a combination.

the pain is pretty bad still.

he didn't give me anything. mri results will probably confirm this. he recommended a dental appt too.

one of husband's friend has this and he's tried everything and has had pain for years. great...

lyme goes into the neck right? any supplements I can take? I occasionally take a motrinbut not often. I do use ice. sleeping is difficult.

Have you tried going to a chiropractor? Maybe an adjustment would help.

dr said nothing until we see how bad it is. he said it could be pressing on the spinal column. we won't know till results are back.

husband's friend did say he bought an inversion table and its helped a great deal.

it's the heavy lifting that did it I'm sure.

randibear-

I have been experiencing the same issue. However, I found the most incredible chiropractor -like Lyme248 suggests above,- and it has been life changing. Two visits in w/ 5 more weeks to go and I am already wholly different then I was before I walked in to said chiro’s office!

I definitely recommend taking Lyme248’s and now my advice. Research a decent chiro in your area and get there stat. It can really turn things around!!!

Keep us posted!
Told you...

I went to a chiro years ago. I was in so much pain for days afterwards. it took a long time to settle down.

they told me it was normal in the beginning.

also y'all know I stay in a constant state of anxiety. my neck and shoulders are so rigid I couldn't even have a massage. I started to cry and she had to stop it hurt so bad.

You have to find the right person. They are not created equal. I've gone through tons of chiros and massage therapists.

Exactly what Tutu says. You've got to find that chiro/massage person that right for you. You won't find them in the Yellow Pages.

You will get names from people that work in the alternative world, like your local health food/supp store. Talk to the lady that been working that store for years. She knows who out there is good with chronic ill folks.

randi, you are going to be chasing your tail for the rest of your life. Because area by area in your body is under attack.

I really recommend your find a great Functional Med doc in your area. I know there is someone in your TX area that can help you.

Stop wasting your time with one traditional medical specialist after another. Find someone that is going to treat your whole body.

That lady at the local Health food store probably knows several in your area that actually help folks feel better.

Find folks that can help you feel better.
