    pinched nerve

    Anybody ever have a piched nerve? I pulled a muscle in my neck (or at least I thought thats what it was) over a month ago. It was pretty bad, I could barely move for a few days. Anyway, it still hurts, not that bad, but it's like I have a permanent stiff neck. It's really starting to worry me. Does this sound like a piched nerve, or does anyone know what else might be wrong?

    no numbness..you know how you feel when you sleep on your neck in a weird way and your neck is all stiff and hurts to turn your head..well thats how it feels all the time.

    Well that's a good sign then.....numbness means you've really pinched the cord. Sounds like you've pinched a nerve or stressed a muscle or two...probably one of those small ones buried under a larger one. If it's been this long and you still feel it then drop by and see the doc...all it can do is help. I've a syatic nerve that acts up now and again and it takes forever for that **** thing to heal up.

    It sounds similar to what I get, I usually see my chiropractor, he does deep tissue massage and acupuncture. I was very skeptical about this but I swear by it. As soon as I start to feel a little discomfort I go straight to him. Right after I put ice on the area, the next day it would almost go away. Main thing is to get to it right away.

    I would call around to different doctors, if you have insurance, get a list of the doctors that you would be covered if you see them.

    I wouldn't mess around with something like this, I had a ruptured disc in my back, and now I can't feel the toes. My doctor warned me that if I began to feel weakness in my legs that he was going to have to operate or risk some paralysis.

    The difficult thing about chirpractic is that you can't proove or disproove their viability.

    But what is really trippy is that they have seminars where they teach them how to scare the crap out peeps so that they keep coming back so that they can milk the insurance companies.

    yeah, the key is to get a good one. Last May I woke up with excruciating pain on the left side of my neck and back, I also had muscle spasms and tingling down my left side of my arm. I could barely turn my neck and when I lost most of my strength on my left side. I figured it would subside but it didnt so I did the Massage/chiropractor combo and let me tell you, the massage therapy/chiropractor stack works like a charm!
