Brief Answer: Xray of the spine in the neck Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. The problems you have could be due to defect in the spine in the neck. I suggest you to get an Xray of the cervical spine. This will help to identify the cause and plan a management. Apply Diclofenac gel to the affected area to get rid of the pain. Do wear a neck collar which will relax the neck muscles and provide relief. Also it prevents further worsening of the problem. Wish you good health. regards,
