I need suggestions on what to do about neck and back pain for over 15 years now. About every 3-6 months I will have a stiff neck when I wake and it will go all the way down my spine with pain ( have a new pillow and a new mattress). I have gone to the doctors several times in the past but they just give me anti inflammatory meds and pain pills. This does help but it re-occurs again and again. Should I just deal with it or does anyone have any suggestions?? I have called my doctor now about 2 months ago and they told me to just ice it. I have never had any type of tests done to see what it could be or not be. I think I might just make a sick visit appointment to the doctor and see what they have to say before they dismiss me over the phone again. I really dont want to take med's other than mortin if I dont have to---I have 2 very active children and cant afford to be laid up sleeping this off. Any suggestions???
