Hard to say: The stress involved in withdrawing from the stimulants might be causing muscle tightness in the neck and some pinched nerves. With your other conditions and risk factors, despite your young age, I might also want to be reassured by assuring that there was no evidence the symptoms might represent angina. That is symptoms associated with your heart not getting enough blood. An exam would help. ...Read more
