I hit the back of my head on monday and its thursday night and the pain is getting worse on the back of my head and I have a stiff neck.?
Not uncommon: Similar to a car accident - you may feel worse several days after the accident. Did you lose consciousness? If so, then see your doctor for exam. Other concerning signs would be fuzzy thinking, headaches, dizziness, nausea, numbness / tingling in the hands or arms. If it is just stiffness and pain then I would see a chiropractor to help speed up the healing process.See 1 more doctor answer

I was hit on the head with a box that wasn't heavy. Before this I had stiff neck, shoulder, & back. What sign should I worry and should I see doctor?
Knocked out.: If the box you and you were knocked out it is much more likely you may have a significant injury. We look for neurologic findings such as mental confusion, upset stomach, eyes focusing properly, ambulating properly. You could also have pain in your arms or loss of function in your arms.
Wait a few days!: Not uncommon to pull neck muscles from a head blow. Take something like OTC naproxen. Wrap a warm towel around your neck. Or in a shower, rotate your neck with warm water flowing over it.
Yes: You may have a serious problem so I would either go to the hospital or see your regular doctor today.See 1 more doctor answer

Buckd off horse 9/7 hit back head. 9/8 sore stiff neck front. Swoll. Musc right side. Treating @ home. Is it worth get. Seen? Or is it muscle strain?
Its definitely muscl: Strain BUT have it checked to ensure you haven't broken any bones in the C spine. If its was a simple strain, then its already been 2 months since injury and it should have been greatly improved. Besides soreness and swelling, are you getting any other symptoms? I suggest have it seen, so as to remove any doubt that a bony injury occurred. Good luck.
