I currently have near the neck. It is towards the left side and near the place where I can feel the pulse. The pain is not alarming but I ask because it is probably not because of neck sprain during sleep

Hello Doctor,

Thank you for the reply.

I don't have pain when I rotate my head from left to right. However, when I tilt my neck towards my right shoulder looking straight I get the pain

Do I take the same medicine ?
