Hi welcome to HCMForum. The shooting pain in the neck radiating to neck is usually due to hypertension or cervical spondylosis. I advise you to consult an orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis and treatment.
Besides i advise you some diet recomendations as avoid taking potato other tubers tomato cauliflower coconut egg chicken and sea foods. to reduce the intensity of pain. if b.p is there avoid excess of
salt spices. thank you.
