Doctor:Good morning
User:Good morning.
Doctor:Please proceed with your query
User:A pain in the left front neck started some 2 days back
User:On Tuesday morning, I thought it is just a normal pain. It will subside
User:but, it aggravated on wednesday morning when I woke up
User:I could not rotate my neck where it was paining. The pain was originating from deep inside the left side of the collar bone
User:Somehow I went to the office but till the evening it had worsened
Doctor:It seems like a cervical or neck sprain
User:yes. it is a neck sprain
Doctor:you must use a cervical collar
User:last night, the pain started spreading to the backside of my left ear, and the left arm as well
Doctor:Use volini spray
User:I used volini and before sleeping, I took a combiflam tablet in order to reduce the pain
Doctor:Did it relieve the pain?
User:today morning when I woke up, the pain has reduced but, still, I cant touch the left side of collar bone
Doctor:I understand

Doctor:nothing is required as of now, apart from rest, volini and combiflam

Doctor:You must rest, just lie down on the bed and read a book
Doctor:Do not use a pillow
