whip lash symptoms caused by broken molars

Basically I cracked three molars which cause headache, stiff neck and tiring neck sensation. Dentist did first of two patches on my cracked teeth next Saturday is my final fixing. So far my only symptom is a stiff neck that is becoming into a whip lash feeling. I tried messages], hot showers and back exercises to relieve stress that do help. My symptoms come and go so I am coming here H/A hopefully someone has other home remedies to relax my neck.

Thank you

    Does the pain get worse when you look down? Any fever?

    Unfortunately, I don't know any magical cures other than lots of ibuprofen. You'll feel better after the last tooth is repaired.

    Good, good.

    Your neck and jaw muscles do tense up in response to dental pain, so you're likely feeling the effects of that. The hot showers and massages are good ideas, anything to loosen the neck up. I hope you feel better after Saturday.

    quick question would exercising cause a problem? Even if I do it lightly like cycle and light upper body?
