Hello good afternoon Alex.
Pain in the neck area can be caused by several conditions:
torticollis, which is a disorder of the neck muscles that results in limited head movement, stiff neck muscles, swollen neck muscles, and one side of the shoulder looks higher. The causes of this disease can be due to damage to the neck muscles (eg due to injury), abnormalities of the upper spine, and damage to the nervous system. incorrect position, for example, head position while sleeping, sitting too much like when reading/playing gadgets, or a rigid position, for example due to working in front of a computer, rheumatic arthritis in the neck. Rheumatic arthritis is an auto-immune disease, in which the body's defense cells do not recognize their own body and instead attack the body's own cells. Fibromyalgia, namely pain in the muscles and soft tissues surrounding meningitis, namely infection of the lining of the brain and spinal cord etc. Regarding gonorrhea, it can be caused by infection of the urethra (urinary tract) due to Neisseria gonorrhea bacteria or bacteria outside of gonorrhea. These diseases are transmitted through sexual contact. Until now there has been no research that mentions the relationship between gonorrhea and neck pain & swelling.
Considering that the pain you are experiencing has been going on for a long time, then I suggest you to see a doctor (especially a neurologist). The doctor may order an X-ray, CT-Scan, MRI, or Electromyography (EMG) if needed. The treatment given depends on the cause of the complaint, it can be in the form of painkillers, antibiotics (if the cause is infection), or even physiotherapy. Meanwhile, see the following article about simple ways to deal with back neck pain, while waiting for a schedule to consult a doctor.
I hope this helps.
