Sam Green Posted November 27, 2013 Share Posted November 27, 2013 (edited) About 1 and half - 2 years ago I was on the toilet late at night straining and pushing hard - I mean really hard! Suddenly I felt this massive pain in the back of my neck. Massive! one of the worst pains I have ever felt! Suddenly as well, from nothing to immense pain within one second with a massive pulse like a big drum banging .As the Doctor said "was like you were hit with a brick on the back of the neck?" Yes exactly like that I replied .Neck was sore so I went to Doctors who sent me for scan -nothing found! About 6 months to a year later same thing happened , massive pain , huge pulse ,terrific pain so bad I screamed and clutched back of neck.Called ambulance went to A & E . Scan again, nothing found. A Lumber tap taken. Told I was O.K sent home. Since then constant pains in back of neck ,headaches in back of head. Currently bad bad pain in back of neck with constantly a feeling like my neck is stiff. Feelings of pressure building up.Feeling in my neck very uncomfortable lying in bed at night. Been to Doctors told it was muscular and prescribed anti-inflammatory tablets and told not to sleep on two pillows. Area just below protrusion at bottom of back of head is painful to touch .Pain seems to be getting worse not helped by cleaning ceilings at work.Are the Doctors right? If it is muscular why won`t it clear up? I`m also suffering from work related stress.
