Causes Of Throbbing Neck When Sleep Deprivation?
Hello, I want to ask, why hasn’t my neck been throbbing every time I haven’t slept.
Neck spasms or strains like yours are actually a common condition. If you are not getting enough rest or sleep, especially when coupled with physical activity that causes your neck to be in a certain posture (for example, working at a computer), this can indeed lead to neck tension. It is not uncommon for this condition to be accompanied by other complaints such as neck pain, stiff shoulders, headaches, or stiff muscles so that they feel throbbing like what you are experiencing.
As an initial treatment at home to reduce neck spasms or tension, the following suggestions are what you can do:
Warm compresses can help relieve muscle tension If there is pain you can take pain relievers such as paracetamol Keep your neck in the correct position when doing activities or lying down If you often do long-term activities that require certain neck postures (for example, reading, working at a computer ) Should do light stretches on the neck every 1 hour Avoid excessive neck movements Get enough rest and sleep Use a hard and low pillow to provide good neck support Avoid using a mattress or mattress that is too soft to avoid a bent neck position Minimizing stress
However, please note that apart from stiff muscles, neck tension can also be caused by other medical conditions such as:
Injury torticollis Viral or bacterial infection Pinched nerves Narrowing of the spinal cord
Therefore, if with independent handling your complaints do not improve, you should consult a doctor so that they can be examined directly. In addition to conducting a physical examination, if necessary, the doctor can also recommend supporting tests (such as X-Ray, CT Scan) to further investigate the cause. Thus you can be given the right treatment according to the basic conditions.
Hopefully this is useful.
