Hello Shinta, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the back of the neck is not always a sign of high cholesterol. High cholesterol due to genetic / hereditary factors are less common when compared to unhealthy lifestyle factors or illnesses (obesity, diabetes, hypothyroidism).
Pain in the back of the neck can be caused by other things, namely:
- Injury to the back of the neck. Pain in the back of the neck can be caused due to injury, for example falling from a height, injury during sports, etc.
- Joint damage to the neck caused by osteoarthritis.
- Neck muscles that stiffen due to prolonged bending, etc.
- Pinched nerve
- and others
Here are things you can do at home to help resolve complaints, namely using a comfortable pillow, doing neck exercises, neck massage can help relieve tense neck muscles, exercise regularly, manage stress well, get adequate rest, increase fruit consumption and vegetables, and you can buy over-the-counter pain relievers like paracetamol.
If the complaint does not improve, you should do an examination with a doctor. The doctor will conduct a short interview, physical examination and additional examination (supporting examination) if needed. And will provide therapy that suits your condition.
If your child experiences complaints such as severe headaches, chest pain, shortness of breath, then immediately take it to the doctor.
