I have had a crick or stiff neck for about 3 weeks. It was getting better but I put ice on it and it got worse and then I used a massager and it got worse again. It hurts in my ears and I have a headache -- not like a splitting headache but just enough to know my hear hurts. Now, I've gotten a crick in my right shoulder. I've tried creams, advil and even the shocking thing but nothing seems to help. What can I do now?
You need an exam
This can be a disc problem.
So you might even need an MRI
It can be more serious than you think.
See your doctor asap.
If it gets a lot worse go to the ER.
You can use ibuprofen, and try heat.
And rest. Until you see the doc.
Let me know if you have more questions.
