    I was having neck issues like that a few years back, before all the worse symptoms hit. I'd wake up every day with a headache and feel dizzy during the day with neck issues.

    It stopped when I changed my pillow. I use a gusseted cuddledown feather pillow, and only use one. Maybe its worth a try for you?

    Me too. Neck pain and one-sided migraines. Getting better since being on my vitamins more strictly. Taking Vit D, Mg, Fish Oil + less caffeine is helping me. Oh and wearing my night guard. But for a while I too was very worried about my neck. Still get it from time to time but not like before- every morning! I think too, cutting down on taking advil and using volteran since I think you become dependent on these and they cause rebound pain.

    Me too!!! I woke up this morning with awful neck pain and a headache. I'm so tired of this, but I can't lay back down because it hurts. I get afraid of going to bed at night because of the pain. It doesn't last all month long, but it is monthly for at least a week. I hope it gets better for you Eliaimee. I hope it gets better for all of us.

      Hi Eliaimee,

      I'm going on a whole week now with this neck pain. I go to bed fearing waking up with the pain. Every night now around 3-4 am I wake up in complete discomfort and the only thing I can do is sit upright or stand. I use a hot water bottle and it helps a little. I really don't know what to do. I've put in a message with my Dr. It's just so frustrating along with everything else. I'm really just venting here. Thanks for understanding.

    Yes absolutely, I have had terrible left sided neck pain for over a year now. It is so bad and is always there, just the intensity that changes. I have tried physio, chiro, osteo and have had MRIs which only showed a slight herniated disc. My pain is mainly at C2 which is up high on left side of my neck. I get pain achiness around my left eye and I feel dizzy and lightheaded everyday too. I've had every test possible and nothing has shown up so it has been put down to peri menopause. I definitely feel your pain.
