Sharp pain in my neck 😭

Jan 08, 2017 11:18 PM

I have a sharp pain on the right side of my neck. It's like a painful pinch when I turn or tilt my head to the side that has pain. I do have stenosis but it has not been this painful. My neck is really tight and stiff on one side. I have pain specialist appt at the end of the month. Any suggestions in the meantime? It is agony 😩

Heat and cold packs - alternating between the two might help?

Thanks I used cold packs in my lunch break which seemed to help a smidge
