My Aunt has a real problem with holding her head up. It appeared to start after having felt unwell one day a few months ago. We are guessing she had suffered a TIA. Ever since it is as though her neck is very weak and she has to use a hand against her forehead to hold her head up. Her GP was very dismissive at the time - her overall condition perhaps warranted more attention - advising her to do exercises! Since then we have bought a soft support collar which helped occasionally (most successfully when travelling in the car) but she has now virtually discarded it. Using a hand to hold her head up makes it even more difficult for her to move around and to eat successfully. Is anyone able to offer any practical advice please or share their experiences?
