The doc is treating for asthma also. Weak asthma. I m now on symbicot n some med for Gerd. But now my worry is my neck pain. It was always there on n off but after this episode, it is become more often. Can u tell me if this could be related to asthma or acid reflux or I should get checked for survical.

General & Family Physician 's  Response

Neck pain is not commonly related to asthma or acid reflux. It can be related to cervical spondyloarthritis.

I suggest doing an X-ray of the neck for further evaluation. Meanwhile, I suggest using anti-inflammatory medication such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms. I also suggest using Voltaren gel for local applications.

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

Take care
