Exercises for neck pain. How to do it ?

Iam having neck pain quite oftenly. The pain is more after i get up from the bed. Iam not able to turn my head. Doctor gave me some tablets and the pain is less now. He told me to see a physiotherapist and top do some neck exercises. I was not able to meet the phyiotherpiast because of my tight schedule. Can any body explain me of some neck exercises?

It is better to consult a doc an da good physiotherapist only. Dont take chances. You cannot be totally busy, take care of your health, to take care of yourself better. Health is wealth.

I am 51 years old male. one year back one day I suffered at my work place a moment of giddiness with a little loss of memory like forgetting the day and it s date and computer password etc. After 15 minutes of taking an antacid it came to normal. After that through investigations I was diagnosed with gall stone and spondilytes. I took medicines but not of much help. Now I feel pain in the neck muscles and with a little giddiness. Is it really a mere spondilytes or any thing related to nerve or brain ?

my 12 yr old daughter Alexis has had severe back pain, leg pain, neck pain, fatigue, shortness of breath and generally just feeling unwell for 2 months. All blood tests came back normal except for 2 Lyme titers which came back positive. However the dr feels this is a false positive and wants to run another test in 3 months. He doesn t want to start her on antibiotics.

I have a pins & needles feeling deep into my left armpit that radiates down the inside of my arm to my elbow, several times during the day. Occasionally while this is happening, i will also have burning pain in the same shoulder - rotator cuff area radiating down the outside of the arm to the elbow. When this happens suddenly and is intense it scares me into thinking I may be having a heart attack, but I don't have any other symptoms, no shortness of breath, no heavyness, no sweats, otherwise I am a healthy 51 year old female. I thought it could be a pinched nerve, but would it come on so suddenly, last for about 15 mins, then subside. This first happened 6 months ago and then again 2 weeks ago. I don't have any neck pain when this happens. Can you have a pinched nerve w/o neck pain?
