Dizziness And Pain In The Right Back Of The Neck?
Good afternoon Doctor. I want to ask, if you suffer from dizziness in the back and right neck almost every day, do you have any danger?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Dizziness and pain in the back of the right neck area may occur due to muscle tension, for example if you daily activities while staring at a computer, looking down or looking up excessively, or also carrying heavy objects around the neck and shoulders. Not only dizziness and pain, this tension can also make the neck stiff and difficult to move. This condition is often harmless and can improve without serious treatment.
You can first try to resolve your complaint with the following steps so that the complaint does not worsen or recur:
Compress neck pain with warm water
Also apply a pain reliever to the painful neck, if necessary
Do not carelessly massage, massage, or break a painful neck
When doing activities, avoid the position of the neck to stay in one position for a long time, rest when the neck begins to feel uncomfortable
Position your body so that it is ergonomic during activity
Expand to exercise
Don't think too much
Do not carelessly take medicine without doctor's advice
Live a healthy diet, low in salt, low in cholesterol, increase fiber and antioxidants
If the steps above have not been successful in alleviating your complaint, you should be vigilant. It is feared, dizziness and pain in the neck that you feel arises because of an illness, such as hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, tension headaches, migraines, nerve pins, meningitis, psychosomatic disorders, viral or bacterial infections, and so on. Check with your doctor directly or a neurologist if your complaint does not improve for more than 1 week or other complaints appear more severe, such as stiff neck, fever, vomiting, double or blurry vision, seizures, decreased consciousness, and so on.
Hope this helps ...
