I have been having neck pain for quite some time now. I have been to chiropractor several times now none of that helps. I have had anxiety for about 9 years now I am 22 years old. I'm always assuming the worst which is typical for someone with anxiety. Any ideas/input would be great. When I take Tylenol it helps a lot but can notice it's still there.

      No I have not. Don't really know what to do for it without knowing what's exactly causing it.

      you might want to talk to a doctor that does it. they would know. I had a seizure and fell and hit my chin on a metal workbench. i hit it so hard the i broke both front top teeth and my entire upper mandable. I had neck pain for years that nobody could fix. the crainial therapy helped relive the pain. I go to the dr about once a year for a "tune up" to keep the problem in check.

    Hi clay, have you had xrays ct scan mri? could be muscular I assume anxiety would cause you muscles to stress up, a gentle massage can also be of benifit, if it's skeletal the test will show that up, perhaps a good physio , good to catch all this while you still young and hopefully minimal damage has been done and a better chance of a full recovery. Good Luck

    I'm having the same pain and believe I finally traced it down to my levitar scapular muscle in my back in a constant state of tension. Apparently this is a common place people hold stress.

    I would recommend trying a series of deep tissue massages around that area in particular.
