I've got a really long, skinny neck and I would like to make it appear shorter. Are there any exercises I can do?

It will provide much more "manly" characteristics/appearance. ...Read more
How long can neck nodes stay enlarged with no signs of sickness? Have had several swollen for 5 months with no decrease. Dr seems uninterested
Ask for diagnosis: Palpable neck nodes that don't go away and large enough to be consider pathologic should be a concern.

I can't correlate with the chest ct as history does not say. ...Read more

It totally depends what the spasms are from. Spasms result from irritation to the nerves. If your spasm is the result of over-stretching the muscles (whip lash) the spasms may last a couple of days. If on the other hand it is the result of herniated discs that may go on for weeks or even months until the disc quietes down.
