Neck pain: Neck discomfort with associated breathlessness and lightheadedness ,especially if unrelated to exertion, is characteristic of tension in the muscles and stress,anxiety reactions. For peace of mind consult an otolaryngologist for evaluation and advice. If no pathology, stress management therapy should help. Discuss this with your physician.
