On Monday I woke up with a pain in my neck, it felt like muscle pain and hurt to turn my head to the left - pain shoots down my arm and up into my head. I have had this before and am assuming it's a tight muscle that is pinching a nerve and will just go away. Fast-forward to now, 5 days later and it is killing me, it's actually worse and preventing me from sleeping at all. Any movement huts. I have rubbed it and can feel a knot and it's VERY tender, I have tried a heating pad, the anti-inflamatories I take for arthritis aren't touching it, Tylenol doesn't do anything. I'm not sure what else to do. Wondering if this is a FM thing or if I need to go see a doc and get some muscle relaxers or something. What do you think? Thanks in advance for advice!
