Please help ... i cant turn my neck to my right side ... it hurts real bad ...?
is there anything I can do to fix my neck except go to the doctor ??

you need someone to help you on this, its real easy.....ask someone to gently place their hand on the left side of your head (while its in straight position).now slowly tilt (or turn, however it hurts)your head in the direction that it hurts BUT just a bit.now ask the person to resist w/ their hand against your head while you push against hand for about 10 sec. then move head more (in hurting direction) and do it again.repeat this till head is all the way in direction need.....IMPORTANT do this whole routine very slowly and bit by bit....works for me every time....good luck and feel better

Well the best thing is to go to the Dr. If you can't do that though take it easy and take an anti inflamatory every 6-8 hours like Tylenol or ibuprophen to help with the pain and inflamation. If you just slept on it wrong the pain may pass in a few days, but if you think it is serious you really should go to a Dr.

I agree with Kevin M.

I think you got stiff neck. Go see a doctor.


Dear Asker!

You might have got Torticollis!

Torticollis (stiff neck) is one of a broader category of disorders that exhibit flexion, extension, or twisting of muscles of the neck beyond their normal position. In torticollis your neck tends to twist to one side. The condition can either develop slowly if you have a family history of the disorder, acutely from trauma, or as an adverse reaction to medications.

When the disorder occurs in people with a family history, it is referred to as spasmodic torticollis. The characteristic twisting of the neck is initially spasmodic and begins between ages 31-50 years. If you leave the condition untreated, it likely will become permanent.

Bending or twisting your neck too far can lead to acute torticollis. This condition appears with few symptoms, although often you will appear uncomfortable and will hold your head straight or rotated to one side. It will hurt to move your head to the opposite side. Your neck muscles on the side that hurts often are tender to the touch. The doctor will check your nerve and motor function to rule out spinal cord injury.

Treatment for torticollis is targeted to relax the contracted neck muscles involved. These treatments include medication, physical devices, botulinum toxin, and surgery. In most people, torticollis resolves in several days to a few weeks. A few people will develop continuing neck problems for months to years. Persistent neck muscle spasms may require referral to a neurologist or surgeon.


If you have spasmodic torticollis that was caused by trauma or by medications, the doctor may prescribe muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatory drugs. These agents usually relieve the symptoms completely within a few days. Common medications to treat acute, spasmodic torticollis include Benztropine (Cogentin) or Diphenhydramine (Benadryl). These medications are usually given into the muscle or through the vein. The doctor may add muscle relaxant or Benzodiazepines such as Ativan or Valium. The medications are continued in their oral form for 48-72 hours to avoid recurrent symptoms.
NSAIDs ( Advil, Voltaren) may help relieve the pain.
Ice packs and massage therapy may also be used for relief if desired.

If you have chronic neck muscle spasms, a neurologist may give you a local injection of botulinum A toxin. This toxin comes from Clostridium botulinum bacteria. It acts locally to prevent muscle contraction in the muscles where it is injected. The toxin often can stop torticollis from progressing and can lead to complete recovery.

Hope that may help you!
Good luck!

Probably a bad muscle spasm or pulled muscle. You KNOW going to the docs to be sure is the best thing to do, so that's what you SHOULD do instead of risking your future health.

If you refuse or can't go right away, put some muscle ointment on your neck or get one of those heat patches. Take some meds like Aleve and rest with your neck well supported and try to relax.

Go to the docs soon though. Better safe than sorry.

the chiropractor is the answer you're looking for.

i had the same not too long ago, and i put up with it for weeks. I tried heat pads, pain killers, buying a new pillow, sleeping in a different position, massage etc.

i gave in and went to the chiropractor. He took an x-ray and discovered i was born with my neck a certain way. he cricked it and it hasn't hurt since.

cost me $40 and it was money well spent in my experience.

Don't waste your time going to the doctor visit an osteopath and he will have you sorted in no time.

Kevin M
You probably pulled a muscle, take Alleve, get it warm, have it massaged and wait.

Yes Hot packs or a heating pad should help a lot. It would help if I knew what you did to it. Muscle creams like Ben-gay may also help. Also pain relievers like Advil will help. If it keeps up bite the bullet and go to the doctor. Some times some thing as minor as a sore neck can turn out to be serious.

Take care,
Kali :-)
