What have you tried for the discomfort in your neck?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No. I assume due to hving chills and cough. But thats gone since this morning but the soreness is still here
Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 5 months ago.

It may be that you have some muscle soreness from all the coughing. Warm compresses along with some acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) or naproxen (Aleve) can help with the discomfort. It should pass in a couple of days at the most.
