Severe Neck and Shoulder pain Hello Dr. I have been suffering from severe pain in the neck area and occasionally in the shoulders too. I have this problem since my school days (got it checked and doctor told that everything is fine) but I have learnt to live with it by applying pain balm so far. Off late the pain has been very severe (mostly after a good days workout, but this was not the case previously. I have been working out for several years, but the pain started recently). I am an IT professional and hence this might be quite common but the pain has increased too much off late. I have to swallow pain killers to reduce, but am sure this is not an permanent issue. Is there anything that I can do come out of this solution permanently. Is there an medication I can start with, or if I need to consult a doctor then kindly suggest whom to contact.

Hi lybrate-user, Do you have pain on weekend holidays? Now U will have to look out whether it has got some relation with work. Adjust your work station. As a IT professional you work long hours with computer. your eye level should match with the top of the screen. Any thing up or down may put continuous pressure and may cause neck and shoulder pain. If you use mobile phone with head down looking at the hand set you may face same problem. So correct your posture while using computer and mobile. Neck muscles exercise both active and passive. U will definitely get some relief.
