Thank you for the question.
Inflamed neck muscles can indeed trigger discomfort around the neck, which is in the form of pain, lumps, tightness, to swelling (to form a lump). This inflammation can also cause systemic complaints, in the form of body aches as you experience them. The stress that the body feels due to inflammation in the neck muscles can also increase the production of stress hormones, which will indirectly suppress the production of reproductive hormones, thus making the menstrual cycle also disrupted.
It's just that, if it is purely due to inflammation of the neck muscles of your complaint arises, often these complaints will only appear temporarily and improve with the handling of a doctor accompanied by the following steps:
Compress the neck warm that is not comfortable, do not carelessly sorted
Rest more, don't use pillows that are too high
When doing activities, make sure your posture is always ergonomic
Not accustomed to ringing the neck or stretching too much
Discipline of exercise
Eating foods that are of balanced nutritional value, especially containing rich B vitamin complexes, calcium, potassium, and magnesium, and drinking enough
Do not smoke and do not carelessly take medication without a doctor's advice (to reduce pain, you may take paracetamol before seeing a doctor)
You need to be suspicious if your condition does not improve with a variety of treatments above. Because, when referring to the symptoms, in addition to inflammation of the neck muscles, your complaints may also arise due to other factors, such as:
Enlargement of the thyroid gland, for example due to Grave's disease, thyroid cysts or nodules, thyroiditis, thyroid cancer, lack of iodine
Enlarged lymph nodes, for example due to tuberculosis, leukemia, toxoplasmosis, lymphoma, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus
Other factors, such as cellulitis, parotitis, benign or malignant tumors originating from other tissues, fibromyalgia, torticollis, etc.
To be clear, it seems you need to check yourself back at the doctor. However, considering that currently outbreaks of COVID-19, non-emergency examinations should be postponed first so that your risk of contracting the disease can be minimized. However, if your complaint is felt to be increasingly burdensome and does not improve at all with the above efforts, it is not a problem for you to get checked out early, right? If necessary, your doctor can refer you to a surgeon, internal medicine, or other specialist.
I hope this helps.
