Hello Wahyu, Thank you for the question.
Complaints of pain in the neck to the back of the head that you feel can be caused by muscle tension associated with the habit of lifting heavy loads on your back. In addition, this condition can also be caused by incorrect posture such as prolonged bowing while reading a book, working at a computer, or using a gadget. In addition, back pain in the neck and head can be caused by tension headaches, migraines, narrowing of the vertebrae. and others.
You can do the following suggestions:
apply a warm compress to the area of the neck that hurts
take pain relievers such as paracetamol if the pain worsens
improve body position when reading, working at a computer, or using a gadget; make it a habit to rest for a few moments from these activities and do simple muscle stretches
choose a pillow that is comfortable to sleep
Do not hesitate to consult with a doctor further if this complaint does not improve for more than 2 weeks or if accompanied by weakness in the hands, tingling or numbness in the hands, vomiting, or dizziness. The doctor will conduct an examination and determine further handling.
