    Hi, I had chemo and radiotherapy to my nasal area and the side of my neck. I have a constant stiff neck but only just experiencing cramping. It has got better but my shoulders and neck do not relax ever. The gp saw my tongue and immediately sent me for scans. I know past history comes into it but surely could have been a different reason. It turns out she thought i had had a stroke in previous months or possible ca...

          Susan, Thankyou for replying. I am going to try and see another go this morning. I have noticed my symptoms increase when anxious, if I relax they just about go away. I think it is coming from my shoulder as it is effecting my arm too. I had chemo and radiotherapy on my head and neck. I’m frightened and feel so sick at the moment

              Jeff, I appreciate it’s been a while since you wrote this information but I am myself 5 years In remission from nasalphryangael ( can’t spell it) . I have just started with cramping in my tongue and I wondered if you even followed it up with your consultant. My gp is sending me back to my local ENT department as she just said my tongue cramping was weird. I’m frightened, reading your post made me feel a little be...
