Physician evaluation

Muscle twitches are often seen in normal individuals after exercise, with physical or emotional stress, as part of a syndrome called benign fasciculation syndrome and may be caused by a wide variety of other problems such as electrolyte abnormalities, thyroid disease, and nerve root compression. Cramps can also be a side effect of cholesterol control medications. You should be evaluated by your MD

Dr. Shahid Rafique answered:

Can tense neck muscles cause fatigue?

Possibly

Tense neck muscles are a symptom of something else. It may be due to anxiety, depression or conditions of the neck or sinuses. All those conditions, if chronic, can lead to generalized fatigue.

I have pressure in the dip of my neck near my collar bone. the muscles around the dip are sore and tense for 8mo. what could be the cause?

Structure/function

Muscle
Sounds like you had thyroid evaluated. Other structures include lymph nodes, blood vessels, lungs, nerves, muscles. Posture, musculoskeletal issues may cause as well. Referred pain from elsewhere also to be considered

Dr. Robert Kent answered:

Bumped head yesterday and it kind of hurt my neck. its been about 40 hours. scared of paralysis. neck muscles are very tense. Panic attacks all day.

Not likely

Pain
If you have not noticed any neurological symptoms yet, such as weakness in limbs or sensory changes, not likely a spinal cord injury. If you broke something that caused instability you would notice same issues with version movements. Recommend getting physical exam to make sure nothing is going on that say could lead to more spasms, even arthritis, but spinal cord most likely not threatened.

diagnosed w migraines by neuro. starts w/ tense neck/ trap muscles,eventually turns into pain around entire head. Vomit. Whatkind of migraine is ths?

Perhaps not true mo.

Muscle
This sounds like a muscle-related or cervicogenic headache. I myself used to have them and I can assure you that the nausea can indeed come from a side effect of neck and shoulder muscles in spasm.
