Treatment For Neck Pain Due To Incorrect Sleeping Position?
Tonight doctor, introduce my name, my mother is 43 years old … I want to ask about pain around the neck and shoulders or if Javanese people say Tengeng … how do you deal with neck pain due to wrong pillow while sleeping? After I massage myself and chips with a coin too, I have compressed it with warm water in a bottle, but the pain has also disappeared … even to the point of feeling dizzy … then I went to the pharmacy to ask about a tengeng medicine, all the dispensaries were given voltaren tablets 50mg .. well, Is it true that 50mg tablet voltaren can and can be drunk to overcome my tengeng TSB? Thank you
Hello Eka, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
Neck pain is pain that occurs in the area from the top of the shoulder to under the head which usually will improve in a few days. This can be caused by torticollis, wrong sleeping position, working at the computer for too long, sprained muscles, and wrong neck posture due to too often looked down or looked up, and injury due to an accident.
Symptoms of neck pain are characterized by dizziness, headache, stiff muscles, neck pain that spreads to the hands or feet, and the head is difficult to move. If the pain does not improve within a few days, the doctor will usually give a tablet or ointment to control pain in the neck. I recommend that you check yourself directly to a general practitioner or neurologist so that a thorough examination can be carried out, such as questions and answers, physical examination of the neck, and supporting examinations if necessary, so that treatment can be given according to your diagnosis.
As for the things you can do right now are:
Can consume pain relievers such as paracetamol with the dosage indicated on the drug packaging
Use a hard pillow with a low height during sleep
Do neck exercises by leaning your head up and down, or tilting it right and left slowly
Compress the neck with warm water
Avoid activities that require a lot of neck movement
Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
