Welcome to XXXXXXX

You are probably suffering with Cervical Spondilytis.

If you are feeling heaviness in the chest also, get ECG done and if report of ECG is abnormal, consult a Cardiologist.

If ECG is normal, get X-ray of cervical spine(both views) done and consult an Orthopedic surgeon for examination.

Meanwhile avoid Pillow and can take Tab.Neurobion forte & Analgesic with muscle relaxant tab 2-3 times daily. You can apply Relaxyl ointment also.twice daily.
