My neck has been hurting for over a week. I do not know how I hurt it. It started on the left back of my neck. Then a couple of days ago, the right side additionally started hurting, and now it hurts when I yawn as well. I have tried Tylenol, muscle relieving cream, heating pad, support during sleep, and gentle stretching, and nothing helps.
I am currently on Kurvelo birth control, Escitalopram (Lexapro), QVAR inhaler.
