General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hello,

I can advise you to do a X-ray of cervical spine. An issue with your neck may be causing the pain. I think spondyloarthrosis may be possible. You may need to take anti-inflammatory drugs such advil or acetaminophen for pain relief. Also physical therapy is advisable.

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

Regards,
