Thank you Dr. Wilmarth for your reply to my situation. I think that sitting in my easy chair brings on the worst of the symptoms. That is when I notice it most, especially turning my neck from side to side. I have never had this until about 2 months ago. I sleep mostly on my left and right side and on my back. Never on my stomach. Haven't done that since my younger days. I sometimes sleep on one pillow and sometimes on 2 pillows that are made of foam rubber. Warm showers and a pulsating stream of water on my neck and shoulders provide temporary relief.View Thread
