I think you should have at least MRI of cervical spine once to look at the condition of the spine and nerves

Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Ok
Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Ill do that
Expert:  Zee J replied 19 days ago.

We need to see there is no trapped nerve or any compression on them

Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Ok is it hurting because if that u think?
Expert:  Zee J replied 19 days ago.

Until that the option would be paracetamol or Ibuprofen and physiotherapy

But after scan there could be other medicines we can try if scan is normal like Gabapentin or Pregabalin or Amitriptyline

Expert:  Zee J replied 19 days ago.

Yes that could be only reason in addition to any injury to ligaments of spine

Customer: replied 19 days ago.
