See primary: Agree with Dr Patel could be BPV.Ansiety could also be the issue also.Regardless you state that you are anxious over this so it is contributing to it regardless of the main cause.So see a doc.The tight neck could be arthritis, migraines could also cause the symproms,as well as allergies or a medication reaction.Need a complete history/physical/labs to fully evaluate this.
