    Can tremendous stress cause neck and back pain?

After a tremendous amount of stress all at once. 3 weeks into all this I started to experience upper back and neck stiffness and pain. Now 4 months later my neck has NOT gotten any better. It is very stiff and painful also it now makes a crackling noise when I move it. Could this still be a part of the stress which is still happening… Or could it be something else I should be worried about?

Hello,

Stress won’t cause neck pain at all. May be ur position of sitting. Do check nearby consultant.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Dr Parkavi Gunasekaran, General & Family Physician
