It sounds like you have a serious inflammation of the tendons in your neck. You should alternate hot and cold compresses and avoid anything that will cause more inflammation.

Thank you...are there any dietary guidelines to foods that can improve or worsen the inflammation ?

I have had an MRI. The neck vertebrae are intact but muscularly compromised.
I have a vague memory of reading that chronic inflammation can be aided by diet.

Lobsang P do you want this topic moved into a different forum? As has been often repeated:

Will members of Dharma Wheel please note the Tibetan Medicine Forum is not a general discussion forum.

It was created so members could ask questions of and receive answers from qualified Tibetan Medicine practitioners. The only person currently recognised by Dharma Wheel as being qualified in the field of Tibetan Medicine is Malcolm.

Members wishing to discuss medical practices or receive general answers and suggestions are free to post in other forums, for example Lounge, Help Required, Personal Experience and Engaged Buddhism, but please keep the Tibetan Medicine forum free of all general discussion, posts of this nature will be removed without further notice.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Tibetan Medicine Forum Guidelines

If you want this topic to stay in the Tibetan Medicine forum any replies from members other than Malcolm will be removed as per the guidelines above.
