Thanks for posting your query.

From the description it seems that your husband is suffering from anxiety attacks.
Anxiety attacks usually peak within ten minutes, and they rarely last more than thirty minutes.

He may be anxious because of an overly demanding schedule, lack of exercise or sleep, pressure at home or work, or even from too much caffeine, such as coffee, tea, cola, energy drinks, and chocolate.

The bottom line is that if his lifestyle is unhealthy and stressful, he is more likely to feel anxious—whether or not he have an anxiety disorder.

Relaxation therapy is also helpful.

Hope this will help you. Please do write back if you have any additional concerns.
Please close the query if you have no other questions.

Wishing you good health...

Question is why would he get this attack during sex? His pain lingers for quite a long time and not just 30 minutes or so. He had this pain last night and still now (11 hours later) the pain is there but not as intense as as when it happens. He is not on a healthy diet but still the question remains why does the pain linger as long as it does

Thanks for posting your query again.

It seems that he had suffered a muscle spasm duing sex. He need to provide rest to the neck. Avoid massaging the area. Doing a hot fomentation will be helpful. Avoid all overhead activities and do not use a pillow.
In case the pain is persistent even after taking a mild pain killer, then he might need stronger prescription medicines like muscle relaxants after consulting his doctor.

Hope this will help you.

Wishing him speedy recovery...
