    Yes I had it really bad for three months last year at this time.  I finally found that gelatin relieves it.  It drove me crazy, I could barely move my neck.  I felt like all my glands were swollen or something.  It was strange, and it really hurt to massage.  Not sure if it is the same as what you have but I must say I have had almost every symptom mentioned on here in the past 4 years EXCEPT the intnese hot flashes.  i get warm,but not like I have fire inside as some explain lol!

    Hope you feel better soon.  you can look up the gelatin cure on google

      Thank you so much for you response. It does hurt to massage. It feels like a pinched nerve on my collar bone at times. Goes to my jaw too! I will look up the gelatin cure. I have had a few symptoms myself. No hot flashes for me either. Hopefully we can skip that part lol! Thanks again. I hope that you are having a good day smile

      gelatin is great for most of what ails us in so many ways.  You would be best to google it.  It helps a wide range of things.  You can also make bone broth it is where gelatin comes from.

    Yes..  I had this....  Thought it was something serious as there were other symptoms but the MRI came back clear..   I guess mine was due to stress.  I stretched it out a lot and went to the pool to release the tension..  The heating pad help also..

      Also, there are heated neck massagers....  X-mas is around the ccorner so I see many are out in the stores..  Could help.. If you can try getting into a pool or hottub..  I believe this really helped me as I was carrying all that tension in the neck area.   Best of luck!!

    Yes. Neck and shoulder on right side. Plus right arm!

    Had terrible pains for years. Tried NHS acupuncture and physio but didn't work.

    Am off to Dr again, to find another solution rather than painkillers and rubs, which don't work either!

    Could do with a weekly neck and shoulder massage.

      Hi LM, 5 months?! Geez! Im getting close to that. Hopefully this isnt a forever issue. Does it ever hurt on your collar bone? I feel like someone is pinching my collar bone area at times. Ugh! I hope that you feel better soon! Thank you for your response.

      Nothing in the collar bone, it's like a whiplash in my left side or like if I slept bad, I don't know its hard to explain but is not going away 😑 sometimes it feels is part of me now lol hope you get better soon!

      Hi Michelle, not that I remember, but I had a very stressful situation in june and it was when I noticed the pain starting... the shoulder is not as constant as my neck, I know I should exercise but I am procrastinating that 😝

      Bobbysgirl, maybe it is because back when the pain started I could hear my tendons popping, mu husband says is the position I use when I am checking my phone or reading in my nook...maybe is both lol
