Hi, I keep getting these stiff neck episodes. Sometimes I'll hardly do anything, and bam stiff neck for weeks! Or I'll see a load of people do something very simple, but I try it and bam stiff neck for weeks! I'm in my 30's but sometimes I feel like I'm in my 70's! What is weird, one day I'll have a very painful stiff neck, and then sometimes it just suddenly disappears. I always find real injuries get better gradually, not all of a sudden. Sometimes I'll be really afraid of hurting my neck, and be extra careful doing something, and that just makes a stiff neck more likely sometimes. I'll list a couple of examples: 1. Neck stretching before activity - neck pain for a week! 2. Went to chiropractors - neck much worse afterwards! Said I had lordosis (lost the natural curve in neck?) 3. Small jump/or trip - neck pain for weeks 4. Neck pain after tennis (sometimes I get it, and sometimes I don't - no pattern) I do get very competitive and hate losing, and maybe this doesn't help! If anyone has had anything similar or thinks it's TMS please let me know!
