For the last 3 years or so I have been dealing with pain and discomfort in my neck area that would eventually lead to a headache. I am not real positive when it started, but at the time I would take a few Advils and be fine. My initial concern was the headaches, they would all start off with a feeling like my neck needed to be popped. If I could not relieve that feeling, then it would eventually lead to a headache. Well, that got to be several times a week at one point. After a few months I asked the doctor about it and we tried some muscle relaxers. That really didn’t help much.
