    By a head

    Recently my neck is stiff and sore. Does anyone have a way of helping? I have always had a big head sadly. 😊x

    Something warm on your neck might help. Hot water bottle. What about your hand warmers? Wrap them up and put the round your neck. Sometimes it can just be sleeping in a different position. Might need a new pillow. πŸ€”


      It could be that your head could do with some support - that's the problem with having such a heavy brain, the neck muscles have a lot to do 😁

      You could ask your OT for a collar and see if that helps. If, as I suspect you will, you'd rather find your own solution, most folk find a soft cervical collar adequate at first, but an OT or physio would examine you and supply an appropriate support if necessary.

      You can try heat, massage and/or painkiller meds or patches. Does the neck feel looser after smoking?

      Of course it might have nothing at all to do with MND! Perhaps your sleeping position has changed and pillows will sort it out.

      Love Ellie.

        Hang upside down like a bat might help. 😁 goose grease or is that for a cold πŸ€”


          I have cracked it. A microwave neck warmer that doubles as a next brace. Bye bye neck ache.πŸ€—x
