Tension, stiffness, and pain in the neck are symptoms that can arise in certain conditions or diseases, including:
Muscle pain or myalgia. This condition can be caused by several factors, including physical activity or excessive exercise, not warming up, or an incorrect position during sleep, sitting, or other positions carried out for a long time. In this condition, generally with muscle breaks, warm water compresses, or massage the patient can feel better. Tension type headache, is one type of headache, which is often accompanied by tension in the neck. Meningitis, is inflammation of the lining of the brain that can be caused by bacterial, viral, or fungal infections. This condition can be accompanied by fever, headache, seizures, until consciousness decreases. Tetanus, a condition caused by Clostridium tetanii infection, which can cause muscle tension, can attack any of the muscles or the entire body. Other symptoms that can accompany include difficulty opening the mouth, stiffness in the back muscles, and facial muscles. The pathway for entering germs is generally through deep and dirty wounds (eg stab wounds caused by rusty nails). Deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals. Some of the diseases above have additional symptoms that vary so that you can assess more or less the most appropriate for your symptoms. Because the causes are also different, of course the handling is also different. If you have doubts, consult a general practitioner or neurologist so that a more complete examination can be made to establish the diagnosis, and appropriate treatment.
Things you can do at home include:
Regulate sleep and rest patterns properly. Lack of sleep or excessive sleep can cause similar symptoms. Likewise, try to sleep in a good posture. Eat nutritious foods, avoid excessive salt consumption. Consumption of water in sufficient quantities, which is about 2L per day. Perform regular physical activity, at least three times a week. Don't forget to warm up before exercising to avoid muscle cramps. Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption. If symptoms start to interfere with your activities and rest, you can try to take anti-pain medication that has a green logo (sold freely at pharmacies) with the dosage and usage rules as stated on the package. However, avoid using long-term (continuous) medication without a doctor's recommendation or recommendation. The danger signs that you need to be aware of are if you experience symptoms such as fever (more than 3 days), difficult mouth opening / difficulty swallowing, severe headaches that do not improve with pain medications, vomiting, stiffness in other parts of the body, like back, hands, feet, etc., convulsions, until consciousness decreases. In this condition, check with the Emergency Department immediately at the nearest hospital.
Thus the information from me, hopefully can help.
