Further evaluation by your doctor is needed....
I have gone through your medical history and understood your concerns.
The throbbing pain
in the back of your neck is nerve related and not blood related. You should see your doctor, rheumatologist
to further evaluate how far the damages have gone and to take proper treatment. Neck X-ray is necessary to be carried out and arthritis
Meanwhile, I advise to:
- apply warm clothing to the painful area
- apply otc analgesic
cream/patches where the pain is
- take calcium and vitamin D supplementation
- do massaging (physio-therapy)
Hope it helped! Let me know if you have further queries!
