Severe neck, shoulder, and upper back pain after d&c surgery yesterday. Had general anesthesia. What can I do for pain relief. Feel stiff as a board!

In brief: Ask your doctor.

Most of the time, anti inflammatory medications like Ibuprofen are ok after surgery, as long as your aren't bleeding much.
Ask your doctor. Otherwise, Acetaminophen (parecetamol, tylenol) 1000 mg 2-3 times a day for a few days can help and are usually safe after surgery. Warm packs, and getting up and moving around as much as you can may help.
