Suggest remedy for headache & stiff neck

Hi I am a 45 year old female who was diagnosed with Chiari 1 about 5 years ago. I am now having pain in the back of my head (base of my skull) when I sleep and it is hard to turn and move. My neck is stiff as well. Could there have been a change? I also got hit in the back of the head with a door the other night. Could that have caused something to happen that I need to worry about?

Hello,

The symptoms can be related to a strained neck muscle. I suggest using a muscle relaxant such as Baclofen three times a day. I also suggest using Magnesium supplement for muscle relaxation.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
