So what Im basically asking is, how much impact does a stressful situation have on the cause of having a neck pain? Have gone from a very positive work life for many years, but I recently changed work due to change in family situation. And I really don't like this job. It's really boring and energy stealing. What I miss is expressing myself, like I did in previous jobs.. The reason for my neck pain is partly, I think, due to bad seating arrangements (desk, chair) but I wonder if stress could have an impact too? Thanks for replying, interwebz
