← Return to Severe Neck Pain and Stiffness from MAC treatment

@pappy7926, I have been on the 3 drugs and they didn’t cause neck pain. And don’t think there’s anything like that in the drug literature.
You write “…She woke up about 12 days ago with a severe stiff neck and pain.” That almost seems like a skeletal or spinal response to something … like from sleeping on a mattress, or working on computer, or bad posture, etc. I’ve recently learned at the NTM conference that there is some connection between NTM (MAC is only one of 150+ types) and mild scoliosis in patients. If the pain continues, I’d recommend your wife see a spine doc — they usually have physical therapists and perhaps a chiropractor on staff with them — they could rule out spinal/skeletal issues and if appropriate refer her to a PT who would work with her on exercises to alleviate the pain and strengthen her neck & back. I’ve just gone thru this, over the past year, and it’s amazing what can be done without medication.
Best wishes, let us know how she is going.

That was good advice, Paula.
