It could be due to cervical spondylosis this is quite a common condition rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days do neck & back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Use of cervical collar will give you relief. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take you will need other supportive medicines also.

Hi it can be overuse injury, tennis elbow or golfer's elbow. Apply cold pack for 20 min. Thrice a day for 5 days. You can start physiotherapy treatment as electrotherapy will reduce pain and inflammation and exercise will strengthen elbow and wrist joint. Wishing you a good health.
