Our expert says:
Sounds like a problem of Anxiety, and some depression often goes along with that. Muscle tensions are part of anxiety, which can create a painful stiff neck. Now this is a most unpleasant state to be in, but fortunately it can be very successfully treated. Ideally, you should see a psychiatrist for assessment and a discussion of treatment options, which could include medication for a time, and counselling to sort out the problems worrying you and developing a better style of problem-solving. You will find a shrink easy to talk with, and while it may take a little whiole to sort evrything out, you should start to feel distinctly better quite soon.
