Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
complaints that you experience there are several possible causes that underlying them:
head and neck injury
pinching of the spinal cord and neck: A shift in the structure of the cervical spine can cause pinched nerves. This will then cause pain, stiffness, or tingling that spreads to other parts of the body, such as the shoulders to the arms.
Certain diseases such as rheumatism, meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain), tumors in the area around the neck, and heart attacks, can cause neck and shoulder pain that radiates to the arms.
to ensure this cause should be examined directly to the doctor, but if this is not burdensome and can still be handled at home you should postpone temporarily to the doctor because it is corona virus, if the complaints you experience are heavy accompanied by shortness of breath and severe chest pain immediately consult to the doctor or to the nearest hospital to conduct examinations such as physical examination, as well as additional examinations such as blood checks, photos of rongen or EKG (heart record) according to the doctor's indications and recommendations so that the doctor can provide the right handler according to the cause.
There are several things you can do at home:
do warm compresses as well as cold compresses on the affected part for 15-20 minutes
You can also take pain medications such as paracetamol
you can do gentle massage
do regular exercise, which is 3 times per week with a duration of 30 minutes, to prevent muscle tension and increase the flexibility of the body's muscles.
stop smoking and adopt a healthy lifestyle.
set the right and comfortable sleeping position so as not to fall asleep, sleep position so that the head position is not too high. One way is to sleep on a hard mattress without a pillow in the supine position. You can also use a special pillow to reduce neck muscle tension.
Thus the info I can give
hopefully can help you
