Q: Hello doctor,
Iam 32 years old female. One morning when i woke up, ifelt pain in my upper back, just below my neck towards left side. due to that my left hand also aches. i feel v uncomfortable to sleep, when i get up my neck gets stiff, with some acitvities it starts moving but again same after sleep. this is the third time i got this pain in a year. Everytime i feel it is because of wrong sleeping. i applied warm olive oil, it was little better, we had a party at home, after that it started more, so i took 'Relaxon' and applied 'Radian'massage cream, but not much effective.its there since 6 days. pls help me out.
