Dear to me it sounds more like cervicle spondylitis and pain radiating to the area supplied by nerves here. Get your investigations done to rule out CS. Here in this condition we advice a low lying pillow and not high uncomfortable pillow at night. No weight lifting and amongst herbal remedies we use triodasahng guggul punarnava guggul with powders of ashwagandha churan.
