My whole life I had neck problems but sleeping on my back is killing me. My neck hurts so bad. I took three advil and a vicodin an hour ago and still crying. The surgery has really been a huge pain in my neck, shoulders, and back. I've tried cold wraps, heating pads, different types of pillows, massage and nothing works. Sorry I just need to complain. I thought at 5 weeks the pain would be minor.
