Hi. Thanks for choosing HCM.
Your symptoms suggest early cervical disc lesion. Please get a X-ray of the cervical spine
in AP & Lateral views & get the opinion of a Spine surgeon
Please do the following till then-
1] Hot fomentation to the back of the neck.
\2] No massaging of the area.
3] Apply a pain reliever gel to the part.
4] Give rest to the neck by a cervical collar
5] Reduce pillow size.
