I am a 60 year old male weighing 70 kg. I have a swelling at the back of the neck. There is also a neck stiffness and giddiness as if the blood supply to the head reduced. I had sudden stretching at the same point 10 years back and had suffered the same problem for six months then. Volini, muffler and heating pads help reduce the swelling. Lifting or stretching the back of the arms, and turning the head sideways gives a creaking sound but, gives some relief. I have been using the computer for six to seven hours every day for the last 12 years. Please advise medication and a specialist, if any, to consult.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
You had a sudden stretching of the neck, followed by severe pain 10 years back. Now, you are complaining of the same pain with swelling at the back of the neck with a feeling of giddiness.
Thanks and regards.
