Hi everyone

I look around at the issues people have to cope with here, and my problem is trivial by comparison. But I searched on the subject and I find mentions but no post specific to neck spasms so if there are any tips they might be helpful to others.

I get very sharp cramps down the right side of my neck. The pain is an 8-9 and it lasts for 10-20 minutes. No amount of rubbing or head movement provides any relief.

Are there any tips for fixing this?

I did follow up with my GP on this. The condition is called occipital neuralgia. Basically its nerve pain, and its not uncommon. The causes vary but she thinks if it was caused by the trauma from the rads it would have surfaced earlier than this. Treatment is a nerve blocking med and physio.

So nothing too sinister we'll just chalk this one up to growing old.
