Hi ,
Thank you for your query.I understand your concern.
You are having symptoms of cervical spondylopathy.
This pain is quite painful and unnerving.
Pain can be relieved by taking painkillers and muscle relaxants.
This should be supplemented by ice packs and rest.
If the pain is severe then physiotherapy should be done after consultation.
Please do not abruptly turn your head and do not lift heavy objects.
Consult a neurologist if the pain increases.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
