Neck Pain

I have been having some bad pain in the right side of my neck. I have always had some neck problems but it hasn't been this bad in awhile. On top of it all my right shoulder is hurting and so is my right arm. My arm muscle is so sore and feels so heavy and tight and I haven't done a whole lot. I have taken Tylenol and tried biofreeze but nothing is working. Has anyone else had this happen? I'm 9 weeks right now.

I am a Licensed Massage Therapist. Is your Pain down the side of your arm or down the back by your scaps? I highly recommend that after your first trimester that you go see a massage therapist and a chiropractor. Both are very safe for pregnancy and will help tremendously. Don't use bio freeze right now. Instead use moist heat NOT A HEATING PAD.... instead use a rice pack. The moist heat will penetrate copper into the muscle. Then every 15 min alternate it with a cold compress. Alternate them 3-4 times every 15 min. Hope this helps!
