The Pain Between The Neck And Spine Has Been 2 Days?
so I’ve been experiencing pain / pain in the area between the neck and spine for 2 days. every time I look up or look down, I always feel pain in that part of the bone. guess why?
Complaints of pain in the cervical spine and spine when looking up or looking down as you experience can be caused by several factors such as:
Muscle tension, for example due to incorrect sitting position, sleeping position (cushion is too high), working by looking up or looking down for too long Neck stiffness / torticollis Spinal cord compression History of previous injuries Fibromyalgia Cervical spondylosis Arthritis Infections such as meningitis For a while you can try some tips the following first:
Use a pillow that is not too high and comfortable Improve the sitting position and sleeping position to make it more comfortable Relax and stretch slowly Cold compresses for the first 3 days, then warm compresses Limit movement in the neck Do not lift objects with resistance on the neck Take pain relievers When it is 3 the day your complaint does not improve, or is accompanied by fever and other complaints, I suggest that you consult a neurologist so that further examination can be carried out to determine the cause and so that you can be given further optimal treatment.
