Bad neck pain

I've developed really bad neck pain and am waiting on X-ray from my local hospital. My GP thinks it's probably arthritis; is there any dietary advice you can suggest please?

Re: Bad neck pain

Hi,

Sorry to hear about your pain - how did it start? any injury? and relevant past medical history?

As long as you don't have neuropathic symptoms - pins and needles or muscle weakness then the mainstay of treatment will by physiotherapy. Sometime posture plays a part.

Interesting to see what the x-ray shows.
