Neck pain after wrestling. What has happened?

Hi my name is Stephen. I have a question regarding a pain in my neck that I ve had since Saturday night. I ll explain so you can possibly get an idea as to what might be going on. I was wrestling with some friends on Saturday and it seems that I had hurt my neck in some way but I didn t notice it until that night when I went to bed. I went to lay down and as I stretched my neck I felt a sharp pain. I didn t know if I had hurt my neck while wrestling around earlier that day but I m pretty sure I got hurt from that. When I woke up Sunday morning my neck hurt even more when I tried to get up which caused me to have to get up rather quickly to get past the pain. I went throught the day trying to ignore the pain to the best of my ability but Sunday night the pain came back when I layed down. Then Monday morning I got up with the pain in my neck and I decided to see where the pain was localized at. I found that it was hurting near the left center portion of my neck. I still feel a bit of the pain in my neck while typing this. So I m curious as to what might ve happened to my neck to cause this pain.

Thanks for posting your query.

It seems to be cervical strain or muscle pull.

I advice you to give rest to your neck. You can take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like motrin to reduce inflammation and pain; muscle relaxants to calm spasm.

If it persist after that , get examined by an orthopaedician and treatment plan according to that.
