I am suffering from cervical spondylosis since last 3 months. The pain originates on the right side of the neck and goes up to the shoulder on that side. I did a 10-day physiotherapy session, but to no avail. The pain is more while sleeping in the night.
You have given your own diagnosis — spondylosis and stress — but appear to have taken only part of the treatment so far. Your doctor or physiotherapist will have shown you exercises for the head and neck that you must do for atleast 10 minutes, twice a day. Regular practice of yoga will not only ease your pain but also promote overall flexibility. A cervical collar will provide support and keep your neck and spine aligned while travelling on bumpy roads. Pain killers (paracetamol) 2-3 times a day after food can help you function at work better. Have your Blood/serum vitamin B-12 and D-3 levels tested. Correcting any shortfall of these nutrients will help in your condition. Use a small 3″ thick soft pillow at night. If you spend lot of time on the computer, take a 2-minute break every hour to move about, stretch and take a few deep breaths.
I am suffering from neck pain. I think it is cervical. Doctor gave me steroid injections and I got temporary relief but then again the pain came back. I am now exercising with a physiotherapist.
Your pain will go with yoga and exercise on a regular basis. I assume an X-ray was taken before starting the physiotherapy. If the neck pain has persisted despite what you have done for it, please see a neurosurgeon, which will ask for an MRI and then advise accordingly.
