me too. Same as Sue and Kat and everyone . . . Cody says he can even SEE it as a huge lump sticking out of my neck sometimes. It was super awful before LDN; just like my feet, those two things kept me awake for years and the LDN kicked their BUTTS. I used to use every possible topical, plus opiates, plus a massaging pillow and a horseshoe-shaped pillow to get to sleep around the pain of that joint.
(Aside - I DID break my neck in high school. Cracked C2 and C3 against each other in an accident. I always figured this was from that, but heck, if everyone else has it, too, then maybe I'm NORMAL! heehee)
And NO, my most glamorous-sounding injury was, oddly enough, NOT horse-related. I was rear-ended in a Geo Metro. lol

Thank you Donette. I tried it and could hear a lot of snap, crackle and pop. It does feel better though.
Cherish your yesterdays,
Dream your tomorrows,
But live your todays.
Do the very best you can
leave the rest to God.
God Bless,

Same here, tried the M. neck go. Now have intolerable neck ache. Interestingly, my new physio tried a very sililar exercise with me last Thursday. But would not let me turn my head too much - so guess I overdid it. Oh well.

I get cranky neck quite a bit. Seems to really restrict my motion when it happens. I've found a unique therapist that has taught me to work the trigger points in my armpit/ribcage areas to loosen my neck. Works pretty quickly to stop the chronic headaches.

Seems the flares in the ribs create hell for our necks because we're supposed to be on a spring-board and when things are flared and stiff down below, everything above has to compensate to keep our eyeballs looking strait to the horizon. So the muscles start to contort us in little ways and will freeze in place to keep things in balance, causing over-work to those muscles and tendons, creating those ever so lovely pain places.
