Primary care screen: With a history of coronary artery disease and smoking , your primary care doctor needs to make sure that the symptoms are not related to your heart. If not, a physiatrist can further evaluate to deteine if there is a component related to the neck. In general, walking alone, without turning the neck, should not exacerbate neck pain.
