Neck And Head Pain

Neck And Head Pain

Does anyone else get sharp pains , like their head is just sitting on a shard stick? That's seriously how it feels. It causes migraines

I always assumed it was muscular, but for me, it has felt like a sharp grabbing or shooting pain

Yes, my neck is also always very tight which if not handled, causes sharp pain in my neck, shoulders, back, etc. I see a chiropractor weekly (this had been the most helpful!) that not only gives me an alignment, but stretches my neck, uses the hydro-bed (heated, water massage) and electro-stim on my neck area.

On my own, I do basic yoga/stretches in the morning, use heading pads often and got my own hand held electro-stim machine which I use just about every day on varies sites around my body... whatever send to be hurting at the moment., but always a round for my neck.

Yes I do everyday! My neck is always very stiff. I use lidocaine cream on my neck then a heating pad.

I also have pain in my neck. I put a nice warm washcloth on my neck. Some days are worse. So I might take a Flexeril. Good .

I ask because I have preexisting neck injuries not related to FM and experience something similar. I liken it to a piece of rebar in my neck from the lower c-spine to the base of my head. It is always uncomfortable and more often than not ver painful.
