Neck pain when turning head, hot sensation. What is this?

When I turn my head to the right....pressure and pain build up in my upper back on the right side, near the base of my neck . It gets mote painful the more I turn...and culminates into a very painful pop and a burning hot sensation. I ve had this for a year. It started as non painful....just annoying. Now though, as I said, it hurts very bad. Any idea on what this is?

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

As you are getting pain only during certain movements of the neck, it could be possibly due to a MUSCLE CATCH or due to IRRITATION OF NERVE in the suboccipital region.

The simplest solution for your problem is to avoid the movements causing you pain.

If your symptoms are worsening over time or is annoying, consult an orthopedic surgeon for evaluation and management.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
