Neck pain while in stand

Recommended Posts

I have always had neck pain. This year it git a lot worse. Turning my head really hurts after a few days in stand. Now I had two jolts or something like that from a nerve in my neck. Feels like a baseball bat hit you for a split second. Hunted all last week that was a long stretch but when it gets colder it may get worse. Will see the doctor this week about those jolts. They hit out of nowhere. Someone said its the optical nerve being compressed?

Sorry to hear this.. Hope it is minor when you see the DR.

A good chiropractor!  Preferably one trained in the Palmer school method. DO NOT let them touch you w/o an X-ray first. I have the same problem and my C helps me. A general physician won’t be able to do anything

A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still

Hopefully your problem can be diagnosed by the DR. Maybe temporary relief can be found by taking an Aleve...helped me with occasional discomfort/pain.

I'm a chiropractor... I agree go get some xrays from your doctor and then see a good chiropractor with a positive reputation. The chiropractor can even order the xrays. Good luck

So that shot of pain or shock can be for compressed optic nerve? It scared the daylights out of me. The only reason I didn't go to the ER was that I was completely fine in a second or two, just some mild throbbing.

No the optic nerve is in your brain and comes off of your brainstem. Something is getting pinched it's best to get some xrays and a proper diagnosis first. Get a full work up from someone who understands the spine... Remember xrays do not show nerves or discs only an MRI would
