What should I do about pain in my neck after I have broken it in 2 places? I've got a neck brace on & it's really hard to deal with.
Ask your doctor. Your question is best directed to the doctor treating your neck issue.
Pain medications. It is difficult to treat acute, post-traumatic neck pain that has to be braced without pain medication. I am assuming you did not injure the cord as you did not mention that, but just the bony portions in the neck? Be cautious using too much Ibuprofen as some research has shown nsaid's can slow bone healing. Discuss with yor physician need for improved pain control, including using stronger meds.
