What is the treatment for neck pain?

Hi, I woke up this morning and I found that when I turn my head to the right it hurts my lower neck and my upper back on the right side too. It only started today but it s been going on all day. It s not severe pain. It does hurt to a degree though. Also, it is a dull pain and not a sharp pain

Hi
Welcome to HCM.
As per your description it seems that your neck pain is not due to spine problems but its due to muscle spasm .It is not a serious issue which can be treated easily. I would like to advice to take tab . Combiflam or tab. Diclofenec twice a day for 3 days . Also apply local ointments such as volini or volitra etc. If it does not subside then add tab myospas . still if you have any doubts pl feel free to ask.
Don't worry. You will be fine soon.
Take care.
