    You know that feeling when youve slept awkwardly and youve got a sore neck? Well I started noticing that last night, but its spread to my shoulders, back down as far as my shoulder blades and now my upper arms.

    So much so I cant turn my head properly without turning my body round. God knows how Ill manage driving to work tonight...

    Has anyone else ever had anything like this... any suggestions??

    Try the topical ibuprofen cream. You just rub it on and it works really well.

    If you don't have that, the pills will help a lot.

    It is very uncomfortable. Hope it gets better quick!

    i deal with this type of thing (and have experienced it myself) in my job. As you can't get a remedial massage right now, other things to try are:

    apply heat (hotwater bottle, heat pack, cream) for 10mins. Followed by ice/icepack (if ice ensure you have it wrapped in something not directly applied to the area) and leave it on the area for no more than 15mins (this is important) you can then alternate the heat and the ice as often as you like through the evening/in the morning.

    If you have epsom salts (not likely but you never know) then put a couple of handfuls in a hot bath and stay in the hot bath for minimum 15 mins (this is important, needs to be at least 15mins).

    Take the ibuprofen/apply ibuprofen cream

    This may bring some relief. Hopefully it does

    If I lived near you, I'd come give you a massage.

    I tell you what i use because i get it all the time is this thing i get from the pharmacy in tesco's. Luckily my pharmacist is very helpful....what it is is a sachet for 50p and you rub it on your neck or anywhere you think you may need thawing out. Its called BIOFREEZE...its a pain relieving gel and its the pups nuts in my honest opinion. Its drug free too.
