Non specific : Your symptoms are not specific enough to suggest a problem. Neck pain and cold spots on the head could mean anything from stress, lack of sleep to poor vision. I would suggest keeping a log of what happens for a week and then see a doc if the pain is significant to you. ...Read more

Irritation: It may be irritation of your posterior esophagus, such as an area of "esophagitis" that gets adversely stimulated and irritated with hot or cold substances. This discomfort since in the back of your esophagus can be felt to be in the back of your neck. Just a thought, so best to get it evaluated to be sure if it persists. Best wishes. ...Read more

Not clear: It's difficult to say whether you're having a psychological disorder like anxiety or panic attacks which could cause somatic symptoms like the ones you're describing or a medical disease such as hyperactive thyroid which could cause psychological symptoms like anxiety. Either way, I suggest to make an appointment to see your doctor as these symptoms may get worse if not treated. ...Read more

Autonomic nerves: The autonomic (involuntary) nervous system is 2 parts: one called sympathetic and the other is parasympathetic. The sympathetic part is responsible for panic (fear fight flight anger and intense exercise) and also gets excited during orgasm. The problem is that fixing this problem is not as straight forward. Discuss with your doc possibly increasing Paxil or using other meds like beta blockers? ...Read more

Flu: Seasonal flu is very common viral infection. Usually the condition resolves on its own with home care. Drink water and get a good rest. NSAIDs (e.g. Aleve) are also recommended every 6 hours. If concerned, see your PCP after 4 days or so. Take this opportunity and quit smoking. ...Read more
