Hello, I am a 80 yr old female who woke up with an extremely stiff neck and I have mild muscle pain getting in an out of the chair. The stiff neck began about 2-3 days ago, I can move my head from side to side and up and down but it is very painful. The main problem I am having is the stiff neck. I have an apt with my pcp on 1/5/15 for the stiff neck but I would like some type of advice as to how to treat the stiff neck while waiting for my 1/5/14 appt. I have htn and currently taking warfarin (angioplasty in 1989, no bypass no heart attack) and also carvedilol, symvastatin, triamterene-hctz. My email address is YYYY@YYYY
