I certainly have sympathy for you and your husband. I used to have debilitating migraines until finally one day my daughter drove me to the Kaiser medical center and a PA gave me muscle relaxers called Norgestic Forte. Took two, slept for 10 hours and woke up and never had a migraine again! If he hasn't tried muscle relaxers before, it's at least worth a try. I wish I could find some other method of getting MY neck to stop hurting. Pain killers do not do the job except for maybe a couple of hours, then the pain is back. Good old Arthur has me in his grips. It's
HE-- getting old!
Good luck to you both.

Thank You, Im not sure if you were talking to us. But I did read your posting and I will check with my husbands Pain Mgt and Neuro Doc's to see if he could at least try a Rx for this muscle relaxer Norgestic Forte. I too have serious neck issues. Over 21 yrs agao I had a very serious car accident. My head went through the windshield talk about WhipLash WOW! Then in 7/2004 I had surgery of the problem. The reason I waited over 21 yrs is because No I did not break my neck back in 88 but after 16 yrs of not doing anything because of course, I didn't have any pain what so ever. Then in about 2002 (ish) I started having issue with serious neck pain and finally could not move or raise both my arms. I started seeing a Chiropractor, it work sort of. My PCP Dr had me on Many paks of Predisone, OMG so much I blew up like a Blueberry (ok White large Grape). She noticed in my xrays I had alot of arthritis in my neck region only and @ the age of (back then) only 38 she was like "your too young to have this much arthritis" she asked me did I ever have head or neck trauma I said well yes does a headon collision count? Ah YES it did. SO began MANY trips to specialist. THen in 7/2004 I had neck surgery my c-4 thru c-7 have been fused (my xrays look like frankenstein). Nowawdays its my c-3 and t-1 thats goving me trouble (pain scale certain days about a 7). Muscle relaxers really are the only thing that helps me. BUT again No Ins No Muscle relaxer and of course NO Dr to prescribe them either. So hello pain. But my husbands pain truly is much worse then my its everyday my comes and goes. Sorry for being long winded BUT I/We are always trying to find a answer for HIS pain (and my). Thank You for the advice i will check with his Dr about the muscle relaxer you suggested.
Many Blessings
Jane
