Thank you for posting your query.
As of now, the injury does not seem to be serious and you need not worry. The pain is likely to be related to soft tissue injury
in the neck and should improve in a few weeks.
You could take diclofenac
to reduce the neck pain
You should consult a doctor, if you notice any of the following symptoms:
1. Sharp, shooting pain along the arms,
in the arms,
3. Weakness in the arm muscles.
The doctor may order a neck scan (CT or MRI
) for evaluation.
Wishing you good health,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
