Lately I have been suffering severe pain in the back of my head and neck, along with a stiff neck. It began about a month or so ago with a stiff neck, some days severe, whereas I cannot turn my head sideways or up and down, some days more moderate, just a stiff, somewhat painful neck. Recently, the pain now radiates up the back of my head as well, again at times so severe that I feel sick to my stomach or as though I could pass out, whereas other times more of an ache or pressure. At night, if I lay on my back, the pressure hurts the back of my head and wakes me up. When I try to move or sit up, I feel extreme pain or pressure in the back of my head. This is impacting my quality of life more than the pd. My nero says it's probably from the rigidity caused by the pd, should I consult my gp? I don't want to take any more meds, and absolutely no pain or sleeping pills. I am selling my new living room furniture in order to buy something high backed to support my neck. Can this be caused by my pillows? What kind of bed pillows do you all recommend?
