I have scoliosis, the degree is also quite large in the 40s, at that time I slept with a thick pillow and also hard neck pain and aching. I thought that being left alone would disappear, but instead it turned into fever, dizziness, and colds. I have taken oskadon, panadol, and a refreshing solution. The second day my throat hurt, it looks like inflammation. But I didn’t get much rest because I was on vacation, the night was high heat and migraine. The third day I went swimming, initially it was fine, but after swimming the wind began to feel hot and dizzy and neck pain. Now I am not hot, but if I sleep my neck hurts, but if my neck is held it doesn’t hurt at all. If I straighten my body like there is a pull on the bottom of the head. When I breathe in the back of my head, it hurts so much. Is this just tired? Please help.
Hello Idyyot, Thank you for the question.
Your neck pain complaint can be related to a fever complaint but may also not be related to a fever. Fever is the body's mechanism in dealing with infections that attack the body. A person is said to have a fever when his body temperature reaches 38 degrees Celsius or more. These symptoms can be accompanied by several other symptoms, one of which is joint and muscle pain in the body, including the neck. Apart from infection (related to fever), neck pain can also be caused by other conditions such as muscle pain due to poor posture that causes muscle tension, hernia nucleus pulposus, narrowing of the vertebrae, narrowing of the spinal cord, and others.
There are a number of suggestions you can try to do:
warm compresses on the sore neck perform gentle massage on the sore neck perform simple neck stretching movements improve your posture especially when sitting or in a reading position or using an electronic device using a comfortable pillow consume pain relievers such as paracetamol if the pain worsens If this complaint does not improve at all more than 1 week or if accompanied by other complaints such as high fever, nausea, vomiting, severe headaches, tingling, numbness, or weakness in the limbs, or difficulty moving the neck, please consult your doctor immediately for examination and further handling.
I hope this helps.
