How can i make my neck stop hurting?

I hurt my neck today somehow and now I can't sleep at all. It hurts from my neck to shoulder on my right side. It hurts to the point I can't turn my head without the pain. What can I do? It has to be something I can do now though. Just so I can sleep through the night. (P.S. I already took pain medication)

Go to the chiropractor, an acupuncturist, or a massage therapist.

To make your neck stop you should do some muscle stretching exercises. Also correct your habitual posture and stop persistently straining your neck. If the pain persists please seek medical advice from a qualified medical practitioner.

I had that once I think it's called a pinched nerve. I had to lie in bed for around five days with intense pain. Put a towl around your neck to make sure you dont hurt it. Rest on it, try getting a massage. Dont do any activities. It really hurts, i know what your going through, do not go to a chiropractor. They might really hurt you. Be careful, be tough, you'll make it!

I had this happen a few times. I believe that when you sleep, you are sleeping with your head in the wrong position causing a pinche nerve from your hea an neck in the same position to long. I use a therapedic pillow. This helps alot. The best thing to do, is stretched your neck muscles, this hurts but you have a stiff neck evenually the pain will go away.

Stretching your neck can make things worse. What you have is probably a pinched nerve and the best thing you can do is find a good pillow that can support your head, ice, and heat; and get lots of rest. Good luck!!
