My cervical spondylosis has flared up big time the last 4 days I have a knot in my neck which is affecting my neck and left arm I have tried painkillers, heat, ice, warm bath and massage but still no relief. I'm not sleeping due to pain

When that happens to me I put some essential oils on my neck and chest and try to relax. Muscle relaxers normally help too. I hope you find a way to get some relief!

I get knots in the top of my shoulders and neck due to cervical disc issues, multiple. I've found massaging voltaren gel, rest, ice, & muscle relaxers are what I needed to relieve it. I also take a break from using my arm, whichever side the knots are on. If I don't relax and rest I end up with knots all along the arm. If the pain is interfering with sleep you should contact your pain doctor or PCP. Hugs, love, & prayers you can get this under control and get relief very spoon! 🙂🙏💕🌼
