Thanks for this reply

Any neck injuries?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no neck injuries

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 years ago.
I would see a chiropractor and have them work on the neck

The vast majority of these are caused by a pinched nerve in the neck

The disc in the spine push out and press on a nerve

There doesn't need to be a neck injury but it is more common with neck injuries

A chiro can be of great help here
