Take anti-inflammatory drug + muscle relaxant
Hi young lady,
Thanks for your query.
You are apparently suffering from a general condition called Cervicalgia
, the most possible causes of which- in your case- are either, spasm (tightening) of the neck muscles/tendons; or, bulged disc of the neck spine.
Rest to the neck muscles/tendons by anti-inflammatory drugs, such as Ibuprofen
, and a muscle relaxant, such as, Chlorzoxazone; and, hot compresses should give you substantial relief.
Also, MRI/CT scan
of the neck spine should be done to rule out/detect bulged disc or narrowing of vertebral
canal. Presence of either of these conditions will require orthopedic specialist's consultation, who will brief you of the best course of action.
Hope I have addressed to your concerns to your complete satisfaction and you find my response helpful and informative. I will be happy to answer further queries, if any.
