You know, sometimes you do something ordinary and manage to injure yourself? Like getting your leg stuck in the steering wheel, when you are trying to change your shoes in your car. Well, now I have a new one for the silly injuries file.

I went to the hairdressers to have a haircut. The hairdresser kept asking me to lower my head and pushing it down, so that she can cut the back of my neck. I didn't think anything of it at the time, but now 2 days later, I am struck with a bad stiff neck. I have taken painkillers, but nothing works. Sigh. I can't do anything and can't even rest comfortably. It's so silly!

a pinched nerve or a pulled muscle can be painful for weeks and even months..Im so sorry that you have hurt yourself like this...hot packs help relieve some of the stiffness and relax muscles..If the pain persists for too long, seek relief from a chiropractor..one quick twist and things will be better..all my best marta.I do hope this will not last too long.

There is enough one wrong movement to bring pain, We have some pastes and gels that help with inflammation, you are probably called differently, but they help with pain.

Yes, I could get a spray or something from the pharmacy tomorrow.

Your neck needs to be massaged.

Can you pop over and massage my neck, Roxanne?

A slow head exercise might help. Put your head up and down and sideways, look to the right, then to the left. Remember to do it so slowly. I did this and was effective. Hopefully it will be ok with you.

Thanks, Violeta, I think I prefer Roxanne's idea. Exercising my neck doesn't appeal at all.

You could warm your neck. It also may help. A cat on the neck could also be good, but it is not easy to explain them how to do it.

The best thing I have found for aches and was marvellous when I hurt my shoulder was Tiger Balm. I got mine in Tesco’s

Yes, Caroline, a while ago I did get my leg stuck in the steering wheel while trying to put on my walking shoes. Thanks for the tip with the tiger balm. I might try that, if I don't any better tomorrow.

You could try Tiger Balm or something similar. Don't use too much though. Rest will probably help. A warm compress will too. (Or a cat.) I have no faith in Chiropractors. They can do more damage than good. xx

I feel a lot better today, thanks everyone. Still a bit delicate, but at least I can move.

Thanks, Carol. I am too antiquated for such exercises. I will watch them and imagine I am doing them. That will work for sure.

The dog's idea of exercise appeals to me more.

The pain has migrated from my neck to my coccyx. This is a good sign. If it moves around, it can't be anything too serious. That's my theory anyway.
