    Sorry ur feeling rubbish and in pain
    Theres nothing much you can do for a trapped nerve really other than relax and rest and take some pain relief! It wont stop hurting until the muscle has released. try not to move ur neck too much as u will be in agony! Maybe a heat pack might help.

    Hope u feel better soon xxx

    Ditto the above. Rest, anti-inflammatories (ibuprofen is brilliant for this) and heat or cold. You can alternate hot and cold on the area if you aren't sure which you need. To check whether you should warm or cool a sore area feel your skin where it hurts and if the it's warmer than the surrounding area you need to cool it (bag of frozen peas wrapped in a tea towel or a gel pack if you have one) and if the temperature is the same use heat (hot water bottle, warm flannel - anything you can think of really).

    If it doesn't go you could see your GP but I personally would go to see an Osteopath. Feel better soon.

    Hi size102b..

    just read your message on here now.. glad to hear that your feeling much better today.. sometimes its only time and rest will heal.. and may have been whatever way you slept... good sign tho that theres an improvement so here's hoping you dont have to visit the doc!

    rest up and take it handy for a few days..
    mind yourself
    kayla

    If things don't improve I would recommend seeing a chiropractor, a little expensive but well worth it. A few years ago I had a traped nerve & the pain was unbelieveable after seeing the chiropractor once the pain was much better & gone after two sessions.
