Brief Answer: Increase in heart rate due to pain or heart dis. Detailed Answer: Hello, I have studied your case. Increase in heart rate can be due to pain or due to heart disease. To know for cardiac origin of tachycardia[increase heart rate] you might need detailed evaluation like ECG[electrocardiogram] and if required stress test. As per your symptoms neck pain can be due to diffuse disc bulge compressing your cervical spine. I will advise MRI spine to know pathology of your chronic back pain. You may consult physiotherapist for further guidance. He may start TENS, or ultrasound which is helpful in your case. You can continue your medication when pain arises. Pain might be disturbing your sleep neurotropic medication like pregabalin may help you. Also check your vit B12 and vit D3 in your blood. Hope this answers your query.
