Doctors have been doing their best and their efforts must have brought you so far. I would suggest you take support of herbal medicine and Panchakarma schedules at some good university level or private Ayurveda hospital in your area. Panchakarma at this may or may not be decided by doctors, depending on your condition. However whatever support you get, it will add to betterment of your very chronic disease.

You can suffer from neck pain for a variety of reasons. The main cause is muscle tension and strain that can be due to poor posture, working at a desk for long hours without taking breaks, sleeping with your neck in a bad position and jerking the neck during exercise. Take a hot bath or shower to relax your sore neck muscles. Rub some lavender oil on your neck and shoulders. Apply gentle pressure in small circular motions to massage the affected area for 10 minutes. Repeat daily as needed. Ice is one of the simplest remedies for neck pain. The cold temperature will help reduce inflammation and alleviate pain. A bag of frozen peas also works well. Put some crushed ice cubes in a plastic bag. Wrap the plastic bag in a thin towel. Put the ice pack on your neck for not more than 15 minutes at a time. Follow this remedy every two to three hours for the first 24 hours. Note: Never apply ice directly on your skin Soak a paper towel in apple cider vinegar. Place it over the affected part of your neck. Leave it on for a couple of hours. Repeat twice daily until the pain is gone. Alternatively, add two cups of apple cider vinegar to lukewarm bath water. Soak in it for at least 15 minutes. Do this once daily until you recover completely. There are a wide range of motion exercises that help reduce neck pain. Exercise will strengthen and stabilize your neck muscles as well as your upper back. Also, it will help to reduce stress. Slowly rotate your neck in a circular motion, clockwise as well as anti-clockwise, to help stretch out the agitated muscles. This may cause a little pain in the beginning, but it will ultimately help your neck loosen up and heal. You can also move your neck slowly back and forth as well as from side to side. Each exercise should be done five times per session, three sessions per day. If it hurts too much, don’t do the exercises and consult your doctor.
