Discomfort at neck base, blood rushing in ears. On blood pressure medication. Causes for symptoms?

I have been doing a lot of painting which required me to reach up high for long periods of time. I can feel discomfort at the base of my neck . Early this morning I was awakened by a pounding in my ears like blood rushing. Is the neck discomfort a likely cause for this? I ve been on BP meds for about 25 years, so I checked my blood pressure and it was about 138/80, which is a fairly normal reading for me.

Yes pounding in your ears may be from neck discomfort. Your neck problem is because of you occupation so i'll suggest you to go for x-ray neck AP and Lat views. If there comes any abnormality you have go one step further for MRI neck.
Analgesics will be sufficient for the time being. Regarding Blood pressure try to maintain it below or equal to 120/80.
