unlikely to be stroke, Could be muscular spasm

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thank you for getting back with the answers. No, it is highly unlikely to be stroke But as you are hypertensive as well as diabetic (although with good control) so possibility of stroke can not be ruled out like this. You can visit hospital to undergo CT head to rule out any possibility of stroke. Meanwhile if i were your treating doctor then i would have advised:
> Naproxen twice a day for 3 days
> Take oil and massage your neck. It will give soothing effect

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you good health !!
