    • Thanks everyone for the comments, it is appreciated and will discuss with my Neurologist later this week during my next appointment.  
    • Yes stiffness might not be related to sah. You can turn your head very slowly to almost touch the shoulders on each side. You can look up and look down slowly. That is the physical therapy easiest way for neck. You can also use an ice pack but do not touch bare skin with the ice pack.   See doctor if neck/ c spine x ray was not done to see if there is arthritis. I cannot give medical advice on what to take since I don’t know allergies and interactions. Hope you are better.
    • Hi Gary, I had similar issues with stiffness around the neck and shoulders and have tried exercises with little success. I've found a corrective chiropractor who makes small adjustments to my neck, not the usual twist and click method, and have found this eases the problem rather than solves it.   Not a lot of use to you with my guy as we're several thousand miles away, but there are a few corrective chiropractors in the States, so it might worth a quick google to take a look.   Please don't interpret this as medical advice as I'm not in any way qualified but it maybe opens up another avenue for you to look at to resolve your problem.
    • I haven't but the reason for the stiff neck could be completely unrelated to your SAH. Continue with the physio and it should help. Note I only said "could" What does your physio think the reason for the stiff neck is? If you haven't asked then please do so.
    • Has anyone gone through physical therapy to help strengthen their neck muscles.  I am still having issues with a stiff neck and have to sit in a chair which offers neck support after 10 months post SAH.  Thanks
