Hi guys, Thanks so much for sharing your experiences, strengths and hopes with me. I am sorry that many of you have shared the same or similar experiences with this pain in the neck:rolleyes: no pun intentended. I am still suffering, worse each day. I will follow up with your suggestions on Monday. I just feel like I can’t hold my head up. After lying down, in particular, I am in in extreme pain. I remember when I was hospitalized with GBS and couldn’t get my neck comfortable I kept insisting to my friend who was an RN to move my pillow in different positions to stop the agitating pain in my neck. Later she jokingingly said “you don’t know how many times I just wanted to put that pillow over you face and smother you”. This was all in good humor, but I’m sure if she were around today, she would willingly move the pillow around. I feel very helpless right now, especially since my husband is not very mobile and in alot of pain with his leg. It’s not like I can say, “honey, could you get me this or that, as I am the one that has to help him. Pray for us! I enjoy your replies and another thing, two margaritas a night is the only time, the pain subsides or stops. The I go to sleep for a few hours and wake up again in agony. I’m hoping this thing will run its course as it usually does, but as of now its lasting past two weeks. Love to all. Bunny
