Hello,

The symptoms are consistent with conditions like cervical spondylitis.

As a first line management, you can take analgesics like paracetamol or aceclofenac for pain relief.

If symptoms persist better to consult an orthopedician and plan for an MRI scan.

Hope I have answered the question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My niece who is two years old periodically complains of pain in her neck. She is not really able to talk very well and so cannot explain what she is feeling. She cries and points to her neck. There is no fever or other signs of meningitis. Her mother says it s been happening for about a month, periodically.
