The symptoms as mentioned in your post can be attributed to para-spinal spasm and entrapment of nerve fibers at the upper spinal region.
Other causes can be:
1. Fluctuation in blood pressure or blood sugar levels.
2. Inadequate hydration status & electrolyte imbalance
of the body
3. Dietary deficiencies of certain nutrients like Iron, Calcium, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, Folic acid, etc. which help in blood formation & nerve conduction.
Symptomatic relief can be obtained by intake of nervigenic agents (like Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Folic acid) as well as multivitamin
& multimineral supplements including iron, calcium & Vitamin D needs to be added in his diet.Physiotherapy
& postural exercise will also be helpful.
If symptoms still persist, kindly consult a Neurologist
& get a complete Neurological examination done.
Certain investigations like complete blood count
, serum electrolyte estimation, fresh estimation of blood pressure & nerve conduction studies will be helpful to rule out any pathological cause for the symptoms.
X ray & MRI of spine can also be carried out to detect any nerve entrapment.
Wishing you a Good Health.
