Spend 10 min. stretching your neck in all directions until it feels loose. Take some ibuprofen and rest a few days. It should get better in 2-3 days. ...Read more

A week ago I started having neck pain along with the sound of my pulse in my ear.The doctor told me my ear was inflamed. How long will it last ?

Heartbeats in ear: Hearing the sound of your heartbeats in the ear can be from different conditions. Inflammation of the inner ear and sinuses with fluid build up, allow sound waves to travel easily. Usually the sounds will decrease once the fluid resolves. In smokers and older patients, hardening of the neck pipes (carotid arteries) allows transmission of heart sounds to the ear, sometimes with a whooshing sound. ...Read more

Early treatment options include a short course of nsaids (advil, aleve), gentle massage, moist heat, and focusing on posture. If pain lasts greater than 2 weeks see your physician. ...Read more

Can someone tell me how long will it take to heal neck pain caused by exercising in a wrong manner?

Can someone tell me how long will it take to heal neck pain caused by exercising in a wrong manner?

Sprains and strains: Muscle pain in the neck or back after over-exercise or strain usually worsens the first couple days. Thereafter, symptoms usually improve daily. Healing time is proportional to the injury—minor strain should heal in a couple days, while a severe strain may take 6 weeks or more if a muscle tear resulted. So just ease back until pain subsides. That's your clue to rev back up. ...Read more
