Does anyone have neck pain on both sides of neck that will not go away no matter what you do? I have had pain in both sides of my neck for at least a week and a half and it isnt getting any better. I was diagnosed with MCTD and I thought like the rest of my symptoms it would subside at times but it doesnt. Last night it was so severe I almost went to the ER. It woke me up and i couldnt sleep all night. I take a pain med 2 times a day and i've tried heat, message, stretches, and icy hot nothing helps I cant turn my head in either direction.
