Our expert says:
You most probably have severe muscle spasm of the muscles in the cervical area. I suggest that you consult a physiotherapist for physiotherapy. You can also consult a chiropractor to loosen the facet joints in your neck. Investing in a Tempur memory foam pillow that is ergonomically shaped, will be beneficial, as it will provide excellent support to the cervical spine. Interim you can apply Voltaren gel onto the areas of pain, followed by a hot compress.
Good luck and advise if there is any change.
