    Injected nape due to stiff neck
    An_251141 posted:
    This was happened in China. I had a cold for i think a month and i took some medicines that the doctor gave me. I wasn't able to read the name of the medicines because it was in Chinese and I can't read Chinese. For sometime i had those medicines but to no effect. Then one morning I woke up with a stiff neck. I didn't go to a doctor because I thought It's just a stiff neck and can be treated by massage. 4 days after still there's no mobility on my neck part so an interpreter and I went to a doctor and the doctor injected my nape twice. I ask what did he inject but just told that it's a kind of pain killer and for my stiff neck to be gone. After like 2 days, i can move my neck a little and after a week have a total mobility on my neck. My question is, is it okay to inject some medicine on the nape? Will it not affect my memory? Because since i had the injection and as time goes by, I'm having a memory problem.

    Thank you so much.
