A stiff neck accompanied by difficulty breathing can be caused by various causes. From the circumstances you are experiencing, maybe one of them can be caused by high blood pressure / hypertension.
High blood pressure or hypertension is a condition that often occurs, and can occur at any age from old to young. High blood pressure in most cases is a primary hypertension that is, there is no underlying disease. Hypertension that has lasted a long time can cause damage to various organs, such as the heart, nerves to the brain. Prolonged hypertension can cause stiffness / pain in the neck, chest pain, shortness of breath, tingling, and possibly an enlarged heart. Hypertension requires direct treatment from a doctor using certain high blood pressure medications that are tailored to your condition.

Cervical / neck osteoarthritis
heart rhythm disturbances
