Please give additional information
Thanks for your query, albeit short .
Noted the history and understood the concerns.
Please give additional information for me to assist you better:
Which side is the pain on?
Any difficulty in movements of neck?
Local tenderness (pain on pressure)?
Any other history please.
Awaiting for your feedback.
No pain on movement
Pain started about one hour ago - sharp pains about every 20-30 seconds
History of afib
As detailed below.
Thanks for your feedback.
The probable causes I can think of are:
Local muscle spasm.
Rare cause of cardiac origin being referred to the present site should be ruled out by EKG.
I would advise you to take an anti-inflammatory with painkiller property like Ibuprofen if it suits you
Better to be examined by a Doctor to get a clinical diagnosis to be supported by investigations if required and get additional prescription based medications as required.
I hope this answer helps you.
Please give feedback.
