What Does Neck Pain Along With Fever Indicate?
Rule out a slipped disc
Thank you for posting the question.
I have gone through your medical history in detail.
I generally see many cases like this at my clinic.I give them rest,analgesics,anti-inflammatory tablets and ice pack till the symptoms reduce to some extent. Then I get an Xray and if necessary an MRI done to find out the exact reason.
In your case,there are 3 possibilities-
POSSIBILITY 1. SOFT TISSUE INFLAMMATION- there may be no bony involvement,only the soft tissues around the region might be inflammed that may be causing the pain
POSSIBILITY 2. NEUROPATHY- there may be a partial or complete inflammation of the nerves in that region that may be the root cause of such kind of pain.
POSSIBILITY 3. DISC PROLAPSE-there may be a compressed a nerve in the spine that might be causing radiating pain in those regions.Possibility of a disc prolapse should be kept in mind.
I suggest you get an Xray as well as an MRI done to find out the exact cause.
Physiotherapy,analgesics,anti-inflammatory drugs should help till then.
Do get back to me after ur reports are ready.
I hope the answer was useful.
Feel free to ask me any follow up queries that you may have.
