    I did have severe neck pain in using minoxidil. At first i thought it was over fatigue. After a month, I was not stressed with anything, im fully relaxed, and not lifting too much heavy weights on the gym. During this time I started using minoxidil again. My sever neck pain came back after 3 days of using it.

    I started to experience neck, upper back, and shoulder/upper arm ache, particularly at night, shortly after beginning Rogaine. For months I couldn't figure out what was going on. I reduced my work-outs at the gym, and finally stopped. I thought it might be from too much computer use, but that doesn't seem to matter. Finally it occurred to me that the pain had begun about the same time I started on Rogaine. I have gone off it for a week and things seem to be getting better. It's a little early to draw conclusions, but thought this comment might be helpful.
